how to know if you have autism?

Social Skills?: If you have a problem with everyday reciprocal social interactions to the point that it harmfully impacts your functioning, it's worth having a neuropsychological evalution. Is it hard for you to understand THAT other people may not think what you think, feel the way you feel about things or want to do what you want to do, ? That makes an ASD more likely than just social anxiety or other issues.
