Ealing Paediatric Occupational Therapy Service

Occupational Therapy is concerned with promoting a balanced range of occupations to enhance health and wellbeing.  Occupations refer to everything people do in the course of their daily life.  Paediatric Occupational Therapists work with Children and Young People (CYP) aged 0-18 who have difficulties functioning in daily living activities due to illness, injury, developmental difficulties or neurodisability (e.g. physical disabilities, autism). 

The Ealing Paediatric Occupational Therapy Service is committed to ensure a child and their family are able to function in all aspects of their lives to their maximum potential: self-care (e.g. dressing to go out, eating a meal, using the toilet), productivity / educational attainment (e.g. playing for young children, attending school) and leisure / socialisation (e.g. playing with friends, participating in sports) etc.

Occupational Therapists provide advice and support to parents, carers and other professionals involved and work across a range of settings where different occupations occur (e.g. home, school, clinics etc.).  The unique contribution of Occupational Therapy includes:

  • Improving quality of life for children and families
  • Minimising barriers to activity participation
  • Reducing impact of disability
  • Promoting independence and self-management

Referral Process

Any parent, carer or professional can refer a child or young person to the service by completing a referral form and sending it in with written parental/guardian consent. 

We will accept the referral if the child or young person has:
• An Ealing GP, and be aged 0-18 (unless they attend an Ealing special school where we are based, in which case we will take referrals up to the age of 19).
• A difficulty or difficulties participating in functional tasks in the areas of self-care, productivity and/or leisure.
