and when we go for walks she gets very upset if we do not take a certain route...
as i type this i am trying to think of any other quirky behaviors... she likes to be covered a certain way at nap and bed time ... i am sure this is all normal but i am a little worried because she is adopted and her bio mom has some mental and learning disabilities and my DD has delayed speech and some cognitive delays... we do see a speech therapist and i have mentioned this and she seems to not take my worries seriously... my DD has come along way in a short time with her speech and cognitive learning and she is a very smart little girl and has a excellent memory and like i said before this is all probably normal but with her history i am a little concerned.... the education specialist we see is on vacation for a month... so i have not been able to talk to her about this... and we live overseas so we have limited medical options

Your daughter sounds like how my boys were at her age--they both have high functioning autism.
It sounds like you are on top of things, and giving her the therapies she needs to maximize her growth and development! :o) That's really all you can do, but since you're starting so young with her, I'm sure you'll see some GREAT things from her in the coming months and years! My boys are 8 and 6 and they are incredibly bright, have high IQ's, are loving and personable, and excellent atheltes and incredibly well coordinated, and I have no doubt WILL someday lead independent and productive lives, and be contributing members of society! It takes a TON of work and even more patience--but itf you take things one day at a time, it will all pay off! :o)
