Early Autism Signs
Early developmental abnormalities in social and linguistic abilities are common in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Less visible distinctions in the development of body movements, pretend play, and social language sometimes go unrecognized. Families may notice variations in their child’s interactions with peers and others, in addition to speech/language impairments.
