What are the mild symptoms of autism and Asperger syndrom?

None are mild: The potential warning symptoms of later trouble are 1. Neonatal jaundice, 2. So-called "colic" and 3. Ear infections that are treated with antibiotics repeatedly. The earliest autism symptoms are a rather sudden change from normal mental development, e.g. Loss of speech, persistence of temper tantrums, hand flapping etc.
