Could it be more than SPD?

I have a little boy who is three. He has already been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, but I've always thought there was something more. Autism was ruled out, since he makes eye contact, and is verbal.
His Sensory System is out of whack but since he has already been diagnosed with SPD, not really a big surprise.
Some other issues he has are I'm not sure if its a lack of empathy because every now and then he does but other times none, Example-He threw a metal train at his cousins head to get her attention and busted her head, He didn't understand what he did wrong and when I tried to sit him down and explain his only response was Mommy you have eyelashes.
He is a pretty active kid, I don't think ADHD really fits him though, because I can get him to sit and pay attention(its hard but it can be done)..
He has starting reading all on his own, one day my sister wrote his and his cousins name on a white board and he said both without being asked, and then he read mommy and his aunts name. So I started doing a reading lesson with him and he catches on very quickly. but he does get very easily frusterated.
He wanders during the night, and have noticed he seems to go for water alot when he does. Have found him washing dishes, taking a bath etc.
He isn't withdrawn, he is a pretty social guy sometimes its scary, he will attach himself to anyone.
