Possible Sensory Processing Disorder

I know the parents of a 4 year old boy who have concerns about some of the things he does. Upon waking up or when he is tired he will rock on the floor or bed. Also he has been a head banger when frustrated, but they say that is becoming less often. He is average in his speech and language and seems to possess normal intelligence. They were curious as to what this might mean. I thought he might have some sensory issues. They have spoken with a doctor who doesn't appear concerned. So does anyone have any ideas?
