Do You Suspect Your Child Has Autism? Learn the Signs Of Autism

AUTISM:


Definition: Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication and often repetitive behaviors that present themselves in early childhood.


Here are some signs to look for if you suspect your child has autism or are looking for answers as to why they have communication problems, social deficits and behavioral issues. It just may be an autism spectrum disorder. (excerpted from the Autism Society of America).


Some individuals mildly affected may exhibit only slight delays in language and greater challenges with social interactions. They may have difficulty initiating and/or maintaining a conversation. Their communication is often described as talking at others instead of to them. (For example, a monologue on a favorite subject that continues despite attempts by others to interject comments).

 

People with autism also process and respond to information in unique ways. In some cases, aggressive and/or self-injurious behavior may be present.
