2. Doesn’t make eye contact
This is often one of the earliest and most notable signs of autism. Eye contact is one of the first and most basic forms of communication and social interaction. At birth, a baby’s vision is limited; however, by the age of 6 months, they usually begin to make eye contact. Should your child not be making eye contact with you, this could be an early sign of autism. Also, this could be a sign of a vision problem rather than autism. Nonetheless, it is important to speak to your child’s pediatrician if he avoids making eye contact.
