Early signs of autism

While talking to other parents, we have come to realise that all our kids had certain similar signs and symptoms when they were small. Here I list down the 10 main ones to look out for. If your child displays some of these symptoms, I seriously suggest that you should go and see a developmental paediatrician to have your child examined.

  1. Delayed speech.
  2. Poor eye contact.
  3. Spinning objects.
  4. Hand flapping.
  5. Rocking back and forth.
  6. Limited diet, consisting mostly of gluten (e.g., bread, cookies, etc.).
  7. Sensitivity to light and loud sounds.
  8. Walking on tip toes.
  9. Lining up objects.
  10. Poor sleep.
