Does neurogenic stuttering ever just randomly all of a sudden stop occurring after a stroke?

I know it takes a lot of therapy, but is it possible at all for the stuttering to just stop all of a sudden on its own?

    Check out this brochure http://www.stutteringhelp.org/DeskLeftDefault.aspx... and contact the Stuttering Foundation of America for help and information.

    Most likely not. It depends on the site of the stroke as to how severe the stutter will be. Because the stutter is a result of injured brain sites which control important nerves and brain connections, unless these lesions healed to a state that speech motor mechanisms could become fully functional again, the stutter would most likely remain to some degree. As the brain heals the stutter may improve, but like you said, it does require intensive therapy.
