I think it's just good. Take good while it's on offer. We get enough of the other

grin at least your house won't be over-run by Lego like mine!

I think an interest in Psychology is very understandable- it will help her to make sense of her diagnosis and how the way she sees the world differs to NT people. My DS with ASD is very sensitive to other people, and understands their motives, and non verbal language much better than my two NT sons. Teachers and other adults are always amazed at his emotional Literacy, but I put it down to our constantly discussing social situations and feelings in an attempt to support him in understanding the world.

If I were you, I'd embrace it, and get her watching YouTube vids of Temple Grandin and the like, to help her in her understanding.

Bless her! How wonderful she is. grin
