Autism Looking Out Of Corner Of Eye
It is often part: People with autism are frequently 'more sensitive' to many things. Direct eye contact is often perceived as 'too intense'. And thins make social interaction more difficult because direct eye contact is a part of communication and seen as a sign of respectfulness. This might be worth working on in a counseling relationship. Develop strategies that can help you to become more comfortable with it. Read more

Is "avoiding eye contact" a sure sign of autism? Or could it be a normal thing for 1.5 years child?
Could be normal: As they say, there are no "pathognomic signs" -- nothing which definitively establishes that a person has this or that disorder. So it could be normal; it could be not normal but not autism; or it could conceivably be autism. However, it would be unwise to be concerned that avoiding eye contact alone, as an isolated feature, points to autism, when it may be, as you suggest, nothing. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Baby boy is a 1month+5days old and he won't look anyone in their eyes. Is it true that is a sign of Autism or Developmental delays?
Concerning: Visual development in infants is stimulated by contrast, so young infants will often look at the edge of your face or head rather than the eyes, but some brief eye contact, particularly when nursing, is expected. Pediatric ophthalmologists can evaluate your baby for vision loss, otherwise careful monitoring by your pediatrician can help early diagnosis of autism. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 10 month baby clenched her fists and shaked with eyes wide open 1st time today when refusing food, like a strong body spasm. Epilepsy or autism or?
Likely NEITHER: If there was no change in the baby's mental status and they simply were showing the strong emotion of anticipation to eat then, what they demonstrated can be quite understandable. However, if there are doubts or this has happened before then, you should see a pediatric neurologist. More questions? Write me at: www. Healthtap.

Seek medical help: You should take your daughter in for an exam with her physician and discuss your concerns.

Is delayed speech a sign of autism, he is 16 months and has just started to make eye contact with me and comes to me to be consoled he also asperates on thin fluids and has reflux. Mum is autistic?
Provisionally yes: One in 10 children have signs of autism at a young age but by 3 the ratio is 1 in 80 for boys. The delayed eye contact is more of a concern. The aspiration of thin fluids indicates a problem with autonomic nervous system control. How is the reflux being treated.? He needs a vitamin d level assessed and complete evaluation.

My 11 month old is walking, babbling, and smiling/making eye contact. My only concern is that he doesn't do hand gestures. Is this an autism concern?
Not likely: While there are case reports of major personality changes occuring with some children after severe head injuries, this would be considered a rare occurance. And then probably not technically autism, since you usually will have to show signs of autism as a child to fulfil the true criteria of autism. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Any significance of head circumference 19 percentile at birth and 89 percentile at 8 years? Child does have level 1 autism diagnosis.
13 month old daughter has started banging head on floor when frustrated. Should I be worried about autism? She plays peek a boo & gives kisses/interac
I wouldn't: Head banging is one of the many amplifications of crying used to get your attention. It works well with some and self perpetuates. If you monitor the fit with peripheral vision and wait until it stops before looking directly at or interacting with the kid, it will often stop. This is common in preverbal toddlers. Reward the kid with more attention after they stop a fit than during to end this. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My daughter is 1 and has started to throw herself back when angry I'm worried she might hurt her head I have a son with autism could she have autism?
Not uncommon/maybe: "Counter dependency" is that stage when your kid has started getting around on their own and want you nearby, but doesn't want you interfering in what they are doing. This behavior is not unusual, is seldom done without witnesses, and mostly when they are mad at you. It increases if it grabs your attention, and fades if ignored. This is not specific or predictive of autism. Any kid could be. Read more
