What We Learned from this Video:

  • There are 5 important signs of autism that parents should not only be aware of, but should communicate to doctors if their child is being screened for autism. 
  • These signs are not concrete proof that your child has autism, but they are worth looking into.
  • If your baby does not respond to their parents/caregiver saying their name, that is something to be concerned about.
  • If your child does not engage in joint attention (joining someone in playing with an object or doing an activity, and dividing attention between the object/activity and the second person), then that can be a red flag.
  • Children who do not imitate others are exhibiting warning signs.
  • Regression or loss of skills is a warning sign.
  • Children with autism often display a lack of empathy, failing to react to others with any emotion.
  • Autistic children may not engage in pretend play.

If your child is diagnosed with autism, do not hesitate to reach out for help and support. Set up a consultation with your friends at Ability Life Solutions.
