Early Signs of Autism

Autism is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. This condition affects social communication and interaction and restricts repetitive behaviors or interests of a child.

When to See a Doctor?

Children develop at their own pace, and many don’t follow the exact timelines found in some parenting books. There are however some signs of delayed development in children with autism spectrum disorder before they turn 2 years old.

Talk to your doctor if you are concerned about the development of your child or if you suspect he or she may have autism spectrum disorder. Autism spectrum disorder symptoms can also be associated with other developmental disorders.

Types of Autism Disorder

  • Asperger’s syndrome. Despite their lack of language difficulties, these children are socially isolated and have very narrow interests.
  • Autistic disorder. Children who are younger than 3 years of age have difficulties with social interaction, communication, and playing.
  • Childhood disintegrative disorder. Children with this condition typically develop for two years, then lose some or all of their communication and social skills.
  • Pervasive developmental disorder. Social and communication skills may be delayed, but this doesn’t fit into another category.
