Varies: Autism disorders occur on a spectrum from fairly mild impairment to very severe. Patients with ASD have problems with social interaction, communication, processing sensory information and intellectual disabilities. For a complete list and more explanation look at the cdc site. http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/signs.html.
