Pediatrician: There are numerous signs, but the best answer is to discuss this concern with your child's pediatrician.Be careful because some specific indicators may be normal variations. These must be taken in context with the overall picture, such as delyed expressive language development.

Evaluation : Take your child to his or her pediatrician for a thorough evaluation. Your child's pediatrician can then refer you if appropriate to someone more qualified if necessary. Autism is a complex, complicated diagnosis to determine. Good luck.
