Infant behaviours that may predict Autism

Infant behaviors that may predict Autism

The first year of a child’s life is normally a non-stop daily or weekly celebration of “firsts” – first smile, first crawl, first steps, first words…first full night’s sleep (with any luck).

But what if your baby doesn’t seem to be reaching these milestones?
Signs that your baby may have autism: (this list should not be considered a diagnosis, only used as a tool to start a conversation with your doctor who can then start a proper assessment process).
  • No social smiling
  • Typically a baby will reflexively smile back if you smile at them starting as early as the first month, but certainly by the age of 3 months.
  • Lack of eye contact
  • Not responding to their name
  • No social anticipation or Peek-A-Boo
  • Poor visual tracking
  • Lack of social babbling
  • Fixation on unusual objects
