Learn the Signs of Autism

If your child or a child you knows struggles with any of these skills we suggest a developmental evaluation.

  • If you point at something across the room does your child follow the point to look at the item?
  • Do you ever wonder if your child is deaf or has a hearing problem?  Does your young child have "selective" hearing?
  • Does your child play make-believe or pretend?  (example:  pretending to drink from an empty cup, pretending to talk on the phone or pretending to feed a doll).
  • Does your child point to things to ask for help?
  • Does your child point to things to show interest?
  • Is your child interested in other children?
  • Does your child bring things to you to share?  Not just for help?
  • Does your child respond to his or her name when you call?
  • Does your child smile when you smile at him or her?
  • Does your child look into your eyes when you are talking to him or her?  How about playing with him or her?
