Babies don’t really exhibit early signs of autism. Autism predominantly is diagnosed in children between the ages of two and three and a half. Regular well baby check ups will spot any developmental delays and address them as though they are the only present concern. Babies develop at their own rates, so even if a baby is two months behind the projected schedule for a particular milestone, it’s documented but there is rarely concern unless the issue is still present at the next well-baby check up. Remember, autism is a dramatic change in how the child behaves and what they are able to do/ what they are like starting at age two.
