Do children with SPD have anger issues? My 3yo son has such a bad temper and there is usually no way to calm him down.

When he was 1yo he saw a speech therapist for oral sensitivity. While he was there the Occupational therapist sat in some of his sessions and she said he had some other issues with touching certain textures. He didn't like his hands messy, didn't like the feel of grass on his feet, and now he still walks on his tiptoes sometimes.

I posted the Spirited and High Needs board, but to me it seems like it's more than that. I just get the feeling that something isn't quite right with him. It's like he doesn't know or understand how to control his emotions.

Here is the link for the message I posted on the other board, it describes some of his behavior a bit better. http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=iv-psspirited&msg=7868.1&ctx=0
