Hi, I'm also in NZ (CHCH) with a daughter now aged 9 who was referred to an occupational therapist by the school and then diagnosed with SPD. If no-one has told you yet - read a copy of the Out Of Sync Child (the local library should have it). It is well worth it. When I first read it, many times I stopped and thought "so that's what's going on, it's not just me"
