Below is a list of “red flags” to look out for if you suspect that your child might have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Keep in mind, Autism is known as a spectrum disorder. The intensity of signs varies extensively! Not all children on the spectrum show all “red flags.” Some infants show symptoms in their first few months. Other children’s signs of Autism are only noticed at age 2 or 3.
It is important to note that many children without Autism show a few behaviors that are considered “red flags.” A professional evaluation is important. Please do not self-diagnose your child.
