My understanding of Aspergers, from those who have it (or have children who are diagnosed), is that it's primarily a social disability. Difficulty relating to other people, difficulty understanding. As with autistic children, those with Aspergers are often highly intelligent, as you have learned from your child.
My advice? Treat her like a kid. Apart from her hypersensitivity, she really doesn't sound different from any child I know, including my son. She's a smart cookie, so don't talk down to her unless she's having a hard time understanding. (I don't know if her babytalk phase affects her understanding, or if it's simply how she communicates.) Keep her engaged with reading or other intellectual exercises. They need not involve the imagination - not all kids like playing "Let's pretend". There's always reading, math, crafts and art to nudge that part of her brain. Kids love staying busy!
It sounds like you have a beautiful, clever little girl! Congratulations!
