Recognise early signs of Autism

Symptoms of autism can be difficult to recognise in very young children, especially in mild cases or in instances when a child has other mental or physical conditions. The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke mentions these possible early symptoms of autism:
*No pointing or babbling by age 1, or the absence of saying single words by age 16 months.
*No response to calling the child’s name.
*Lack of early social or language skills.
*No eye contact with others.
*Obsessive organising or lining up of objects.
*Not smiling.
