Can SPD be episodic

by Danielle
(Jc, tn )

Our 4.5 year old son has some of the signs of spd. He likes his hands clean, doesn't like being rushed, has trouble with socks and shoes, obsesses over things and has bouts of terrible violent inconsolable tantrums.


We thought it was terrible twos and he seemed to outgrow it. But now it comes in bouts around change or sickness. He makes friends, is social, very smart so he doesn't seem to be autistic but

I do think he might have spd. My question is can it come in bouts? Can it be episodic? Like not happen for months and then happen for days or weeks at a time? Are there food triggers? Like gluten sensitivity?
