Asperger's Syndrome

I'm writing a story from the POV of a character who has Asperger's syndrome and is a professor of mathematics; this has presented me with something of a dilemma on a descriptive standpoint though. I've done quite a bit of research and I can imagine how they would evaluate other people, but how would they describes objects? Would it be beyond the realm of believability to describes things by associations. For example, traditional description would be something like, "The apple was red like a ruby" and what I'm talking about would be, "The apple was red; he recognized the shade from when he was younger, with the linen checked tablecloth. He half-expected to touch it and feel fabric."

Anything about how people with this syndrome view the world would be a tremendous help.
