Autism signs/sxs: In children, red flags for autism/aspergers is diverse. Impaired social skills, speech & language & nonverbal communication difficulties, and inflexible behaviors are classic themes. In babies and toddlers: no-eye contact, smiles, response to name, following objects visually, reciprocal behavior, initiation or response to cuddling, playing with others or sharing interest/enjoyment.
