Top 9 early signs for autism

I just came across this blog post on the early signs for autism, and needed to share it. This is an article for everyone to bookmark and share. Of course, any one of these signs is not diagnostic--many babies with normal development may have some piece of them. Also, many children with an autism spectrum disorder may have only had a few (my son among them). The best course of action is still a developmental or speech-language evaluation if you suspect autism.


But looking for early signs can move one toward early intervention at a much younger age. And early intervention improves outcomes for all kids, not just those who have an autism spectrum disorder. So read the article, bookmark it and share it. And when a friend asks you about early development, pull this one out.

Which of these signs did you see (if you have a child with autism)? Which one surprises you?
