Okay, I can't beat that list. I do, however, have an unusual therapy to add: magnet therapy. It was a (brief) part of my speech therapy while I was an undergrad. I think they decided to stop with the magnets because every time they put a magnet on my head or my belly and asked me to talk, I couldn't -- because I was laughing too hard.

1) Therapy with various school SLPs.
2) Private therapy with SLP 1 as a child. (This one videotaped me to point out all my speaking mistakes)
3) Private therapy with SLP 2 as a child.
4) Private therapy with SLP 3 as a child.
5) Group workshop with Martin Schwartz (airflow) as a teenager. An awful experience!

I have done a couple of therapies multiple times. But I also left out some of the home therapies I have done. I also threw this list together quickly and may have forgotten one or two.
