I need help with enunciation and stuttering/Speech Therapy?

People always say that they have difficulty with understanding with what I say, and it really frustrates me. I can't ever speak my DDA for speech team properly because I can't enunciate properly, but my coaches say my acting is perfectly fine. I always stutter and I always have since 8th grade. I had mouth surgery, but my parents said no to speech therapy because they claimed they didn't know any speech therapists even though we have TONS of them in our area. They're still refusing to pay for speech therapy (even though we can afford it) and I can't pay for it because of no job. The way I speak really frustrates me, and I feel like people respect me less for my voice. :\ I really wanna find some other way to help my enunciation and stuttering problems......

    Stuttering Foundation on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/stutteringfoundation

    "Self Therapy for the Stutterer" published by The Stuttering Foundation of America worked wonders for my family members who stuttered after working through it step by step. The book can be found here http://www.stutteringhelp.org/Portals/English/book... It is great for those who do not have access to speech therapy.

    The Foundation also has a list of speech therapists worldwide who have been trained to work with stutterers.

    Simon & Garfunkel is my maximum suitable track scientific care. I hear to the ultimate Hits album every time i've got faith like sh!t. for occasion in the present day i got here residing house from college feeling adverse (stress and disease) and curled up in mattress under a pile of blankets with my mp3 participant with that album on repeat. I have been given up 3 hours later and felt like a sparkling person. different artists that usually seem to help with that stuff are gadget, upward thrust against, and Crossfade. Metallica each from time to time too. i in my opinion think of that track is the ultimate scientific look after a broken soul and/or physique. track is surprising, and has impressive therapeutic characteristics. i could extremely choose to pursue track scientific care as a occupation. this could be a great question. i'm curious as to what your "sense greater beneficial" track is?
