How can you tell if it's autism?

Hi, my three-year-old is a little bit hyperactive and for a while we thought she might have a speech problem. She repeats everything several times when we don't understand her and she gets easily frustrated. Sometimes she gets so angry her face gets red and she screams uncontrollably. I don't know anyone with an autistic child and I'm not sure if these are signs of autism or just a very stubborn toddler. Please help!
