12 Most Common Symptoms of Asperger’s

5.  Unusual Facial Expressions and Postures

what are the signs of autism

People with Asperger’s have a very limited emotional range, and often have difficulty recognizing what emotions other people are experiencing. They may thus adopt a variety of facial expressions and postures that appear to be inappropriate for the situation, but what they are actually feeling may be fully appropriate.

People who lack self-awareness may be unable to perceive the way they are perceived by others. They could also lack knowledge about social situations. If someone appears a little awkward, perhaps because of their gait or reaction to things, they might have mild Asperger’s.
