#7. They Don’t Make Eye Contact

Kids are typically familiar by nature, they love interacting with their parents, siblings, and other people.

They recognize faces and listen to voices, and they are always observing what people do and say.

Kids with autism, though, may have a more difficult time interacting with adults; and may not respond to eye contact or a parent’s words.

The National Institute of Mental Health explains that children with autism may have “a tendency to look at and listen to other people less often.”

Please, even if you are unsure, have your child evaluated the earlier, the better!
