Could Your Child Have Autism? 4 Signs That May Lead to a Diagnosis! by Carrie Wells
Do you suspect your child may be autistic? Here are a few things to look for.
- Children with autism often have repetitive behaviors.
- They have a difficult time interpreting social situations, like when it's appropriate to greet others or how to share with peers.
- They often have developmental delays, especially in the area of communication.
- They may be sensitive to different sensory experiences, including light, sound, movement, taste and textures.
Sound like your child? Autism is diagnosed through a series of formal and informal observations and interviews. Consult your pediatrician if you have a concern.
