Phone Service for People with Speech Disabilities
Trish’s guest for this week will be Dr Bob Segalman. Born in 1942 with Cerebral Palsy, his parents insisted on mainstreaming him several decades before inclusion was even conceptualized. As an end result, Dr. Bob received two doctoral degrees and is the founder and central advocate for Speech-to-Speech phone services for people with speech disabilities.
OPTIMAL HEALTH SEEKERS’ RADIO, airing Sundays at 4pm Eastern, is an online radio show that educates, inspires and empowers people seeking to find their own personal level of optimal health.
Host Trish Robichaud brings a voice of compassion, logic and humour to those who are motivated to take an active, even proactive role in managing their health.
Join her on Sunday, February 6 at www.OptimalHealthSeekers.com!
Dr Bob Segalman“A major problem is not the disability but the way able bodied people perceive people with significant disabilities, especially speech disabilities. I constantly have to educate strangers that I am (intellectually) competent. Another problem is that many people assume that because of my disability that they can take advantage of me financially.”
Join us and learn how Dr Bob almost single-handedly revolutionized phone communications for people living with speech disabilities in the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Sweden through the use of a telephone assistance service called Speech-to-Speech.
