Early Signs & Main Symptoms of Autism
If your toddler isn’t babbling by 12 months (or doesn’t babble), he or she could be autistic––even if they’re high functioning!
If you think there’s a chance that your toddler might have ASD, see our specialist right away.
Although some children show symptoms of autism at an early age, many parents don’t notice anything unusual until the child is around 18 months to 2 years old. Common signs of autism in young children include delayed language development and abnormal social behaviours, such as avoiding eye contact or failing to respond when their name is called. Autism is more common in boys than girls.
Autism Signs To Watch Out for
1) No babbling or pointing by 12 months. (This includes not using gestures such as shaking their head “no” or waving bye-bye.)
2) No single words by 16 months. (Autistic children may use occasional words, but they won’t combine them into phrases the way most children do.)
3) No two-word spontaneous (not just repetitive) phrases by 24 months. (Autistic children’s speech may improve with therapy, but it rarely becomes like that of other kids their age.)
4) Any loss of any language or social skills at any age.
5) Any loss of physical milestones, such as not being able to crawl or walk by the usual age.
6) Very limited eye contact. (Even when an autistic child wants something, he may have trouble looking at the person who has it.)
7) Problems with sharing and taking turns. (For example, wanting to keep another child’s toy without even asking.)
8) Not responding to their name. (If a parent calls a child by his or her name, the child should look up and at least acknowledge that he or she hears it. If they don’t do this, this might be a sign of autism.)
9) Trouble understanding other people’s feelings. (For example, when another child starts to cry after being hurt, an autistic child may just stare at him or her instead of comforting them.)
10) Problems playing with toys the right way. Autistic children often play with toys in unusual ways, such as lining up all their cars instead of making them crash into each other.
Are you concerned that your child may be socially awkward?
Here are eight signs that may suggest they are
If your child displays any of these signs, it is important to get them help as soon as possible. At this age, children often have a hard time describing what is going on inside of them. This makes it difficult for you to know if your child is suffering from social awkwardness or not.
Here are a few more signs that may help you better understand the problem.
Your child may be socially awkward
If they are not spending much time with other children.
If your child is playing alone for hours at a time, chances are that they are socially awkward. This may be due to many reasons. They could feel like they do not fit in with the kids in their school or neighbourhood. The people around them might even make fun of them because of how weird they are.
If they do not show any interest in making friends.
Socially awkward children will often times talk to themselves and also play with their imaginary friends when they think no one is looking. If this sounds like your kid, try to engage them in some conversation and make them feel comfortable around you. This will help them overcome their shyness and fears and gain the confidence they need to make friends.
Offers of help with math or reading are often ignored by these children as they do not want anyone else invading their personal space. Forcing your kids into doing things they are not comfortable with is what often makes them act weird.
They do not like playing games or watching movies that require both team work and social interaction.
If your child does not like playing group sports, video games or board games it may be a sign that they are socially awkward. Cultivating this part of their personality will help them to make friends.
Socially awkward children are really bad at making conversations with strangers or people they do not see very often
If your child is afraid of talking with anyone new, then it may be that they are socially awkward. If this is the case, you can help them by asking simple questions and trying to engage them in a conversation. Compliment them on their outfit or whatever activity they are currently involved with. This approach will help them overcome their fears and be more open towards people they do not know very well.
Other Red Flag Symptoms of Autism
-Regression of milestones: if your child develops the milestones as expected but loses them by 12-18 months and stops smiling, cooing, pointing, etc., it is a definite reason for concern.
-Stimming: repetitive behaviors like head flapping, twitching of the eyelid, twirling, flapping their hands, spin in circles are all signs that you need to consult the paediatrician immediately.
-Abnormal eating behaviour: Pica (an abnormal desire to eat something that is not regarded as food, such as dirt, clay, ice, or hair), eating only certain food types like sweet or salty food or only ‘yellow’ or a particular colored food , or not wanting to eat food at all are all signs that you need to consult the paediatrician immediately.
-Self-injurious behavior: Biting, head banging, body hitting are all signs of significant developmental delays. Autism is considered only if the child is over 3 years old and has delayed milestones in addition to self injurious behavior. If the child is below 3 years then the diagnosis needs to be revised.
-Airway changes: If a baby has a strong preference for sleeping on his stomach with his face buried in the mattress, it may be a sign of increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
-Easily overstimulated: If your child is sensitive to loud noises, a new person entering the room or a stranger getting in touch with them it is a definite red flag.
-Poor eye contact: If your child doesn’t look you in the eyes when speaking/asking questions/crying it is a definite red flag.
-Weak body muscles: Watching their baby not being able to sit up or stand without support is quite bothersome for parents.
-Being reserved with strangers: If your child is not comfortable with you introducing them to a new person it is a definite red flag.
-Inflexibility of routines: If your child goes through distress when there are changes in the daily routine, then it is a definite red flag.
-Perseverations: If your child repeats same behavior, say line up the cars again and again or likes to play with a particular part of their toy it is a definite red flag.
-Posturing: When the arms and legs are held in certain positions like flexed (bent) at elbows and knees for extended periods of time is a definite red flag.
-Inappropriate laughter: When the baby laughs at stuff that aren’t funny it is a definite red flag.
-Not babbling by 12 months: This is a major red flag of autism and needs expert assessment immediately. If your child isn’t cooing or doesn’t make any sound until 12 months of age is a definite red flag.
There are very few signs that definitely indicate autism in children; therefore, when in doubt, it is best to consult our physician and request an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) screening test. An ASD screening tool like the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers (MCHAT) can help identify children with strong signs of autism in toddlers.
What is Autism?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurological disorder that affects the way a person processes sounds, sights, and smells. This can lead to socially awkward behaviours.
In some cases, a person with autism will have other problems. But in many cases, the person with autism is very intelligent and can do math or art really well. For example, they might be able to paint better than someone who does not have autism. If you notice that your child has these symptoms of autism then talk to your doctor and get help right away. A person with autism will usually be unable to communicate very well. But sometimes they can do math or art extremely well. This is why if you think your child might have autism, talk to our Homeopathy specialist right away and get help.
