Thank you!

>> As for ASD... I'm pretty sure I was mildly Aspie... and I may still be just a wee bit, but seem to function ok now (I didn't during my early college years, and it hurt... but as the lad from Holy Grail said, I got better!)... <<

That perspective is helpful too. I've got at least one character who had the benefit of childhood therapy, so managed to compensate for some things like the language limitations; but that tends to break down under stress. Different levels and types of traits, and adaptation, are good.

>>I haven't run across anything else that springs to mind immediately, but the way *you* write this... yeah. It feels right, and is done positively.<<

Yay! That's encouraging.
