I think my child may be Autistic, how do I know?
Autism can be detected form 18 months of age and is defined by a certain set of behaviours and is a “spectrum condition” that affects people differently and to varying degrees.
Early detection helps a person receive the support and services they need, which can lead to an improved quality of life.
Signs to look for:
- Repetition in language or movement – such as repeating the same word or sounds, hand flopping or any repeated movement.
- Atypical non-verbal communication, including eye contact and giving few facial expressions.
- Prefers solitary or parallel play rather than engaging in associative or cooperative play with other children.
- Extremely distressed by changes including new foods.
- Strong, persistent interest in a specific topic, part of a toy or item.
