Can dysarthria due to acute stroke be cured?

Can be improved: Speech therapists help immensely, and are very successful with dysarthria. Occupational therapists may provide additional support. Some medications, such as Ritalin (methylphenidate) may improve dysphasia, and occasionally help dysarthria. So, lots of support out there. Get involved in a rehab program.
