DiscussWithPediatric: You do not diagnose Autism this way.Even though there is delay in milestone as far as crawling is concerned as most babies learn to crawl between 7 and 10 months age.But some babies are late and it is not a sign of autism.Discuss your concern with baby's Pediatrician at next well baby visit at 12 months age
