Sometimes, we all need a little extra help to get ahead. But in some parts of the world, access to much needed resources, such as doctors and therapists, is not as easy. For one of our users, finding a speech pathologist close to home was a challenge.

有时候,我们都需要一点额外的帮助才能取得成功。但在世界上的一些地方,获得诸如医生和治疗师等急需的资源并不是那么容易。对于我们的一个用户来说,在家附近找到一个语言病理学家是一个挑战。

Tom, a long-time Skype user from Australia, reached out to us with a story of how speech therapy via Skype has been helping his son overcome a speech impediment. The closest speech pathologist—Scott McNabb from the Box Hill Speech Pathology Clinic in Victoria, Australia—was located an hour away from his son’s school, making it nearly impossible to schedule a weekly therapy session without missed classes or Tom having to be away from work.

来自澳大利亚的长期Skype用户汤姆向我们讲述了如何通过Skype进行语音治疗帮助他的儿子克服语言障碍。最近的言语病理学家Scott McNabb从盒子里山言语病理学的诊所在Victoria,澳大利亚是位于从他儿子的学校,一个小时的路程,使得它几乎不可能安排每周一次的治疗没有逃课或汤姆不得不远离工作。

With Skype, Tom’s son can participate in speech therapy sessions during school hours and Tom can stay at work. “Thanks to Skype, the sessions can be scheduled during recess at my son’s school, so he doesn’t miss any class time. It also enables me to be at work, as I would miss around two and a half hours of work time due to traveling to an appointment and then back to school.”

通过Skype,汤姆的儿子可以在上课时间参加演讲治疗,汤姆可以继续工作。多亏了Skype,课程可以在我儿子学校的课间休息期间安排,所以他不会错过任何上课时间。它也使我能够在工作,因为我会错过约两个半小时的工作时间,因为去约会,然后返回学校。

Tom’s son logs in to Skype from a laptop at school, while Tom logs in from his phone at work, and the speech pathologist dials in from his office.

汤姆的儿子从学校的一台笔记本电脑上登录Skype,而汤姆在工作时从他的手机里登录,语音病理学家从他的办公室里拨了进来。

Tom, who has been using Skype since its early days, explains what made him turn to Skype: “I chose Skype because it is easy to organize a group call, it is cross-platform, and it is an app that was approved for use on the school network.”

汤姆从早年就开始使用Skype,他解释说是什么促使他转向Skype的:“我之所以选择Skype,是因为它很容易组织一个群组电话,它是跨平台的,它是一个在学校网络上被批准使用的应用程序。”

After a couple of trial sessions with Tom and his son at school together, his son can now host the Skype calls, dialing in both Tom and the speech pathologist. During the call, therapy consists of helping Tom’s son speak smoothly with the specialist and identifying moments of speech that can be made fluent. Tom’s son has made very encouraging progress with his speech pathologist over the past couple of months during these Skype sessions.

在与汤姆和儿子在学校进行了几次庭审后,他的儿子现在可以主持Skype电话,同时拨打汤姆和语言病理学家的电话。在电话中,治疗包括帮助汤姆的儿子和专家流利地交谈,并确定能流利地说出来的话。在过去的几个月里,汤姆的儿子在他的Skype会议上与他的语言病理学家取得了非常令人鼓舞的进展。
