Your child can be referred by:

yourself (parents or carer)
a teacher
a health visitor
a nursery
a GP, or
another professional.

All referrals must be made using the Children and Young People's Therapy Service Referral Form which can be found on the following link:


Please ensure you read our inclusion criteria and requirements for additional information detailed below before you submit your referral.

Sometimes we may decide on receiving a referral for your child that it is not appropriate or necessary for your child to be seen by our service. A letter will be sent explaining our reasons to the referrer.

A referral form contains personal and sensitive information so please make sure that the form is sent to us in a safe and secure way.
Please send the forms by post to:

Community Child Health Reservation Team
Children’s Assessment Centre
Kent and Canterbury Hospital
Ethelbert Road

Notes: Please note this is an administrative address only for the Children and Young People’s Therapy Services based in Ashford, Shepway and Dover/Deal and no child will be seen at the Children’s Assessment Centre at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital by our service
