  • What are some signs of autism?? There are all sorts of signs - too many to just list on here. It requires a fully qualified child psychiatrist to properly diagnose autism.

  • 1 1/2 is usually too young for a proper diagnosis.

  • A developmental pediatrician should be able to evaluate him.

  • One and a half is NOT too young to know, if you know what you are looking for. Stimming behaviors such as head rocking or hand flapping. Poor joint attention. An example of this is if you point to an object and he doesn't turn to look . Playing inappropriately with toys. Such as spinning the wheels on a toy car rather than pushing it or lining up blocks. Speech delay is usually present. Have him evaluated by a developmental pediatrician. They can tell you and help you get any services he may need if he does have autism. I have three on the spectrum myself. I diagnosed my oldest son at 15 months and had my suspicions confirmed shortly after.
