Signs of autism

Autism signs

Autism can be diagnosed at any age.

Today, autism can be diagnosed in children aged two years and even younger. Siblings of children already diagnosed are being assessed before they are one.

For some people their diagnosis of autism won’t become apparent until after they start school and in some cases when they are an adult.

Knowing the signs of autism and what they look like at different ages will help you decide what next steps you want to take.
