It is usually detected in the first two years of life. Cause is unknown but strong evidence points to an interplay between genetic and environmental factors.

My son is 11months, 1 week he walks on his own and says mama but he is not intersted in pointing or clapping. Should i be concerned about autism?
A specific " mama": Used to get your attention, with smiles of delight when you look at him & say, yes, i'm mama!" is fantastic! acquiring words to label things is not the same as communicating. Pointing for what you want is a 12-month milestone, pointing to share interest in objects is 14-16 mos. Mimicking simple games like peek--boo, pat-a-cake & waving "bye" is his job now. Just show his doctor at his 12-mo check. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
