The severity and timing of autism symptoms are unique and vary for each individual. On one hand, there are some autistic children who show obvious signs of underlying symptoms during their first few months while on the other hand symptoms are seen not to be obvious for as long as 24 months of a child’s age.
Few children diagnosed with autism are seen to develop normally until two years/24 months of age and they tend to lose any/all of their skills without obvious signals.
Nevertheless, there are some of the 'Red Flags,' which one can use to understand if a child risks being diagnosed with autism.
Further, it should always be noted that children displaying some of the signs of being autistic should not be taken as a final conclusion.
If you find yourself being in a dilemma after you have completed reading this insightful guide, it is highly advisable to schedule an appointment with a doctor for further evaluation.
