I fully agree with you. The Crutches not only avoid blocks and stutters, they also improve our speech. They make it more interesting, expressive, clear, especially the ones like modulation, word linkage, speaking like a king/queen and smiling. I can’t remember the last time I used a Crutch and the other person I was speaking to stared at me in a confused way because I used a Crutch, or because they didn’t understand what I said. But they surely did tht when I stuttered or got blocked while tryinig to say (force) a word. That’s the difference.
But I admit that at the beginning we might feel a bit awkard while using them. It is normal. We’re not used to it. It’s something new for us. It is like the first time we play a new sport. But after practicing, we will get better at it, and we will stop feeling that way. It’s a matter of practice.
