Do I need a referral for my child to start seeing an Occupational Therapist?

No. You do not need a referral to see an Occupational Therapist. However, there are some funding models which provide you with some rebates and they may require you to obtain a referral from your General Practitioner (GP). For example, if your child is eligible under the Chronic Disease Management Plan, they are entitled to Medicare rebates. In this instance, they will need a referral from the GP to access these rebates.
