Language Fundamentals is a privately-owned corporation with the philosophy to provide excellent Speech Language Therapy and Swallowing Services with caring and compassion. We work collaboratively with other disciplines such as nurses, doctors, dietitians, physical and occupational therapists to ensure our clients maintain a strong quality of life. Unlike a staffing agency, our Speech Therapy Service provides an entire team of Speech Therapists dedicated to senior care and highly skilled in treating today’s medically complex patients with swallowing disorders, speech language deficits, and cognitive issues. As an organization, we are sensitive to your clinical needs while ensuring a return on investment. Our team provides services to Post-Acute Care Facilities while maintaining our commitment to excellence and understanding towards our clients as well as their family and loved ones.

Our History

Language Fundamentals was founded in 2001 by Michael Webb and Melissa Webb to provide speech therapy to Skilled Nursing Facilities. Because of the outstanding service provided, it became clear to Michael and Melissa that there was a need in the community to provide speech therapy in a whole new way. Since then, the Webb’s reputation for honesty and integrity has fostered Language Fundamentals’ growth and expansion across the region and across the continuum of care. In 2017, SLP Communication Foundations was born to provide Early Intervention Services to the community. SLP Communication Foundations is rapidly expanding across New York State, currently approved in 15 counties. Soon to be more! Also, in 2017 we moved into our new home at 1032 Main Street in Fishkill, NY. The home office has office space for a staff of 5 with space for our outpatient services and FEES testing.
