First, it’s important understand that
autism affects social development, communication development, and those
other behaviors, those general skills we use when we interact with
our environment. Signs of autism can occur as early as infancy, but we start noticing them more around age one and certainly by ages two and three when
children start communicating more and start interacting more socially.
When that’s not happening, that’s a particular concern and could be a sign of autism. Some common signs to watch for would be avoidance of eye contact, They may not seem like they’re picking up on things from their environment, They may show an avoidance of social interactions.
But it’s important to remember, not every child with autism is going to present all of those symptoms. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at Great Heights. We are here to help!
