What are the Main red Flags for Autism?

The following warning signs could mean a child is potentially at risk for autism:

  • Not smiling or expressing joy by 6 months
  • Not sharing smiles, facial expressions, or sounds back and forth with a caregiver by 9 months
  • Not responding to name or babbling by 12 months
  • Not gesturing back and forth with others (e.g. pointing, showing, waving) by 12-14 months
  • Not using words by 16 months
  • Not participating in pretend play by 18 months
  • Not combining two words together on his or her own by 24 months
  • Regression of previously learned language and social skills

If your child shows any of these warning signs, act fast, and talk to your pediatrician right away.
