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).
- 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
