i would definitely have her checked for autism or ASD or Aspergers — again contact a pediatric neurologist or do a search in your area for CARD (center for autism and related disorders) even if its not autism or aspergers they can still help (hence related disorders) — all of the diagnoses we have been talking about are interlinked and work on the same part of the brain and are very closely related and many of the meds are the same as are the therapies and alternative treatments.
kids with autism even low-functioning kids often have a very specific talent or two that is mind-blowing — working electronics, remembering certain things, etc.
when i have time i will post some good links to get everyone with questions started. webMD has some good basic info, as does autismspeaks.org although they tend to talk alot about the most severe cases to get attention and donations but there are good links there.
