The autism spectrum is extremely broad, from very severe cases where the person can hardly communicate, to others who grow up to be top scientists. 

Your daughters attachment to shoes and socks is a common characteristic of a child with autism, as well as the slowed communication.

Unfortunately, there is such thing as regressive autism, in which a child loses previously gained communication skills. Ask your pediatrician for help in sorting out your duaghter's symptoms.
