Signs of autism can be detected in an infant as young as 6- 18 months. Some symptoms that occur in older babies and toddlers are failing and responding to their names (child may appear to be deaf), avoiding eye contact, they may play with toys in an unusual way like line them up or focusing on parts of the toy rather than the whole toy. But since every child is different not all of these symptoms may apply to every child, and even if a child is displaying some of these signs that does not mean an automatic diagnoses of autism. However, if someone you know is displaying some of these signs and you are worried about the, you should contact a pediatrician.)
