Signs of Autism in Children?

Autism is a multi-faceted disorder that can present with a number of symptoms. The most common cases present with delay or regression of social skills. Children with autism will avoid eye and physical contact. They will often retreat to a corner when confronted with other kids or adults. They also tend to focus on objects, not people or animals. Spinning, flapping arms and making repetitive noises are characteristics of autistic children. Children on the spectrum also tend to overreact to changes in their daily routine. A simple change can result in a hard to control outburst. For additional information, visit:
