What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk via Twitter!

Please visit your child's pediatrician and discuss this matter.  I wonder if she has color blindness or a variation of this genetic disorder.  Although not typical in females, color blindness does occur with females from time to time.

Also, if this is not the case, then your child's doctor may help you discuss further steps.  Synesthesia could be a possibility, however, specialists will need to help you.

Good luck!
