Why does somebody stutter? Are there ways a person can train himself not to stutter, without hiring a specialist?

In brief: Defect

Stuttering is a left frontal cortex brain disorder, that one is born with.
It is difficult to learn how to not stutter without an experienced therapist. Perhaps reading appropriate speech therapy articles could help. Sort of learning how to perfect your piano playing without an instructor. It can be done, just takes a lot longer and ultimately may not work out as well.
