Signs of Autism

3937805-a-girl-with-her-back-turned-and-ears-coveredChildren with an ASD exhibit a wide range of behaviours. Essentially though, the child will have difficulty relating to others and making friends; difficulty in communicating (some children may not talk at all); and be unable to engage in imaginative play.
Other signs include obsessions, fears, a lack of awareness of danger, ritualistic play and behaviour, inappropriate eye contact, hypersensitivity to sound, light etc., pinning objects and hand flapping.
A child does not need to show all these signs to be diagnosed as having an ASD and some children who do not have an ASD may exhibit some of these behaviours.
