If you are deaf or hard of hearing, DTA must ensure effective communication with you. 106 C.M.R. § 360.510. DTA requires staff to be trained on and use auxiliary aids.
Both the printed and online SNAP applications ask if you need support services or have a special situation for which you need interpretation services. This can include if you need interpretation, communication access real time translation (CART), or sign language interpretation to communicate with your case manager.
