How to Know if Your Child Has Autism Disorder?
If your child has Autism, then he will not take much interest in increasing social, emotional, and social interaction with others children of his age or it should be said in simple language that he will be unable to understand all these things. Children live in their world, neither they listen to anyone nor are they able to explain their point to anyone.
If you ask a child with Autism to point at an object, then he will be unable to do it or it may also happen that he does not listen to you, for example, if the child of Autism, if any flying object like If an airplane or a bird is shown sitting, then he may not even see it and if you say more then he will start looking angry, that is only because he is not able to understand your point and because of not understanding, only anger is with him. There is no other way than to look and be irritated.
If your child has turned 2 years old and still he is unable to speak and does not know how to speak, then it can be a sign of autism.
