In brief: Often less social

There is not a single type of autism.
Every one with this label functions a little differently. But in general each one has some depree of problem with: social skills, empathy, communication, and flexible behavior. The level of disability and combination of problems vary greatly from individual to individual. Some speak normally, others don't speak at all.

In brief: 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.
