In brief: See below.

Mild autism is characterized by persistent abnormalities in social interactions, restricted & highly focused interests, and restricted repetitive and stereotyped behaviors.
There's often limited ability to have spontaneous social interactions and a failure to develop friendships. There may be delays in other developmental areas as well.

In brief: Autism

Poor eye contact, not pointing, prefer play alone, not responding with happy emotion.
These are just a few. Having one or a couple of these signs doesn't mean you have autism . Talk to your child's doctor if you have concerns.
