FIPP accepts referrals directly from parents, physicians, and other community-based agencies and programs.
You can make a referral by filling out our online referral form, or by contacting our Intake Coordinator at (828) 608-6704, or (828) 608-6700.
If you have concerns about your child, FIPP can do an evaluation to help you determine if your family can benefit from our services.
Children age birth-five as well as women who are pregnant and located in Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, Catawba, and McDowell counties in North Carolina can be referred.
FIPP accepts payment in the form of Medicaid and insurance. For families who do not have this, a sliding fee scale is available based on the family’s income and number of family members in the home. No child or family is refused services based on an inability to pay.
When the referral is made, our enrollment coordinator will contact you within 48 hours to gather information about your family’s needs or concerns. Within a week of your referral, our team will work together to select the provider that best fits your family’s needs, and this person will contact you to set up the first visit.
Our Team includes experts in education, nutrition, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology.
