Autism And Babies And Symptoms:

What is autism?
Autism is a brain disorder that begins in early childhood and persists throughout adulthood and it affects three crucial areas of development that are communication, social interaction, and creative or imaginative play.

What are the basics of autism?
There is usually nothing about how a person with autism looks that sets them apart from other people. But people affected with autism may communicate, interact, behave, and learn in ways that are different from most people. And here children with autism may have problems with social, emotional, and communication skills where they might repeat certain behaviors and might not want to change in their daily activities. Autism spectrum disorders begin during early childhood and last throughout a person's life so these people also have different ways of learning, paying attention, or reacting to things.

According to The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, a child or baby with autism might have the following symptoms:
They do not play but "pretend" to play games (pretend to "feed" a doll)
Not point at objects to show interest.
They do not look at objects when another person points at them
Have trouble relating to others.
Usually they avoid eye contact and want to be alone.
They have trouble of understanding other people's feelings or even talking about their own feelings
They prefer not to be held or cuddled or might cuddle only when they want to.
They sometimes appear to be unaware when other people talk to them but respond to other sounds.
They are very interested in people, but not know how to talk, play, or relate to them in short communication problem.
They repeat words or phrases in place of normal language.
They go on repeating actions over and over again.
Babies have even unusual reactions to the way things smell, taste, look, feel, or sound
They lose skills they once had for example they forget the word which they had used before.
