In brief: Social interaction

A few things. One it's important to have a hearing test to rule out hearing impairment.
A hallmark of ASD is abnormal social functioning such as preferring not to be held or cuddled. Limited eye contact or interest in conversation. ASD often also presents with delays. Delays alone, however, are less likely to have social dysfunction and are usually more specific. I hope this helps.
