In brief: Yes to speech

A stroke can cause changes in speech if it affects speech centers in the brain.
This includes sudden onset of stuttering. Stroke can present with myriad of symptoms ranging from death to the inability to move parts of the body to changes in behavior. The hallmark is the symptoms usually occur suddenly at the time of the stroke.
