Where to go

Clinical Psychology Service for Children with Disabilities
Carmelita House, 21-22 The Mall
W5 2PJ

Referrals to the Service are made by the Consultant Community Paediatricians in the Child Development Team, and occasionally by Social Services. In addition, there are clinical psychologists employed by Belvue, Castlebar, Springhallow and Mandeville Special Schools where the child/family can be referred by the Head Teacher. The family will be notified by letter when a referral for their child is received and the expected wait time for an appointment. When an appointment is offered the Psychologist will invite all family members to meet with him/her at the clinic to discuss their concerns and ways in which s/he can help. These may be for the whole family, or for the child or parent(s) alone, depending on what is needed.
