The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends screening children beginning at 18 months, but research suggests subtle warning signs may be apparent even earlier.
The early social, communication, and behavioral differences of autism spectrum disorders are apparent if you know what to look for.
The AAP encourages doctors to be aware of the signs of ASD, and to be on the lookout for these signs during every well visit.
Dr. Andrew Adesman, MD, discusses the early warning signs and symptoms of Autism, as well as when you should seek help and early intervention.
