Does this sound like autism or what?

At the age of 4 lets call her abby so abby was diagnosed with mental retardation.
She was delayed in fine motor skills, and gross motor skills and had OT and PT for that in 2nd grade-4th grade.

abby was diagnosed with deafness later but took time because you can't find a mild loss quick after birth so she when she was 11 months old she put her finger in the sweeper and was still crawling.
They finally found deafness later than that and can't fingure out what age abby was when she was diagnosed with deafness.

the mild loss regressed to moderate as she got older. She finally got hearing aids at the age of 16.
In grade 10.
later she was finally diagnosed with sensory issues which she is sensitive to touch,taste,smell,noise,storms hurts her ears.
she has a death grip on pencils or pens because ot says because she can't feel the pen or pencil. it is so painful to write and stressful to hold a pencil because it doesn't feel right or good in her hand.
She talked late and walked late and did everything late.
She was severely developmentally delayed at age 5. In kindergarten teacher ms. adams decided after one semester with abby she could teach her. So whole time she was put in the corner and not taught. She taught the other kinds but not abby.

Her Parents didn't know what was going on until they found out and put her in another school and lost half a year of kindergarten learning and was there for 1st grade at the new school too.

Abby later had more difficulties in high school she had panic and anxiety attacks which was very painful for her.
Then last year she was diagnosed with asthma.
In 9th grade diagnosed with adhd combined type, mild case.
