An autistic child may also struggle to begin or keep up with conversations. Beginning a conversation takes several expressive language skills that many autistic kids struggle with, and keeping up with a 2-way conversation can be overwhelming and exhausting. You might also notice that an autistic child may not respond to their name.

It may be symptomatic of autism if you see your child convey their strongest emotions in the form of an adverse reaction to the music or TV being turned up too loud… or if adults in the room are having a loud and animated conversation… or if other children are playing nearby are making loud sounds… or even when you run the vacuum cleaner.

Early symptoms often noted by parents include delayed speech, restricted interests, not responding to his or her name, and avoiding eye contact. No two children with autism will have the same symptoms. Warning signs might be easy to see in one person, and virtually invisible in another.

Autism is a diagnosis that you can go get. You can go to the doctor, you can fill out forms, you can see therapists and neurodevelopmental pediatricians and neuroscience and a million different people… And you can get an official diagnosis when you see the right person and they say, yes you are autistic. But being autistic is also an identity.

One of the biggest signs that I hear of high functioning autism is when your child has negative reactions to certain sounds, smells or textures. So for sounds, if your child has a very difficult time with loud noises or needs everything to be very loud this is common for autistic children.

The questions expose you or your kid’s behavior in four of the five categories. The fifth category is best to be inspected in a clinical environment.

Autistic children also may not play with other children as you might typically expect. Autistics tend to prefer “parallel play” where they play near other children without directly interacting. Your child may also seem like they are “in their own world” a lot of the time.

You know that you don’t want to change who your autistic child is, you fully accept and embrace who they are as an autistic person. But also, as a parent, it’s kind of our job to change our kids from who they are right this moment, into the autistic adults that they are becoming.
