Name That Learning Disability/Impairment!

So I'm writing a story in which I have an 8 year old girl who is disabled, but I have no idea what the proper terms would be/ if there is one currently.
Timeline: Set in present day, your average metropolitain city 2009/10
Character is: Lacking in Basic Interactive Communication Skills (which, as best I can Google means that she's delayed with 'playground English' or Survival English), hypersensitive to noise (SPD- Sensory Processing Disorder), doesn't like strange people or situations and highly gifted learningwise. Has Autistic tendancies (obsessions, fixations, learning delays and aversion to eye-contact and touch), but I can't accuraely call her Autistic...

Maybe she has several Ld's? IT's pretty flexible right now seeing as I can't accurately represent this kid

So, anyone know their learning delays? Or something that sort of fits...

Googled: BICS+developmental delays+SPD, Learning Disabilities, Learning Delays... I tried but it's hard to know what to Google as well- if anyone has any ideas, be my guest and share ^.^
Have A Background in: Commmonly diagnosed learning delays/disabilities, common behavioral issues of young children

Hopefully I did this right...*crosses fingers*
