As a person who stutters, the two tools that have been instrumental in my speech journey have been hypnosis and diaphragmatic breathing.   You know that when you have a block, your entire body is tensed and it may be that way for a quite a while.  Hypnosis taught me how to breathe into relaxation so that I can use this technique in my daily regimen.  Also, diaphragmatic breathing has taught to me while in my 20s and it has proven effective in beginning my sentences on the exhale with 100% fluency.  Disclaimer:  I know everyone is different when it comes to their own speech therapy journey but for me, these two tools have proven very valuable on a daily basis.
