Autism - SymptomsCore symptomsThe severity of symptoms varies greatly, but all people with autism have some core symptoms in the areas of:Social interactions and relationships. Symptoms may include:Significant problems developing nonverbal communication skills, such as eye-to-eye gazing, facial expressions, and body posture.Failure to establish friendships with children the same age.Lack of interest in sharing enjoyment, interests, or achievements with other people.Lack of empathy. People with autism may have difficulty understanding another person's feelings, such as pain or sorrow.
Verbal and nonverbal communication. Symptoms may include:Delay in, or lack of, learning to talk. As many as 40% of people with autism never speak.1Problems taking steps to start a conversation. Also, people with autism have difficulties continuing a conversation after it has begun.Stereotyped and repetitive use of language. People with autism often repeat over and over a phrase they have heard previously (echolalia).Difficulty understanding their listener's perspective. For example, a person with autism may not understand that someone is using humor. They may interpret the communication word for word and fail to catch the implied meaning.
Limited interests in activities or play. Symptoms may include:An unusual focus on pieces. Younger children with autism often focus on parts of toys, such as the wheels on a car, rather than playing with the entire toy.Preoccupation with certain topics. For example, older children and adults may be fascinated by video games, trading cards, or license plates.A need for sameness and routines. For example, a child with autism may always need to eat bread before salad and insist on driving the same route every day to school.Stereotyped behaviors. These may include body rocking and hand flapping.
Hi Chunk Chunk!
Symptoms in adulthoodSome adults with autism are able to work and live on their own. The degree to which an adult with autism can lead an independent life is related to intelligence and ability to communicate. At least 33% are able to achieve at least partial independence.2Some adults with autism need a lot of assistance, especially those with low intelligence who are unable to speak. Part- or full-time supervision can be provided by residential treatment programs. At the other end of the spectrum, adults with high-functioning autism are often successful in their professions and able to live independently, although they typically continue to have some difficulties relating to other people. These individuals usually have average to above-average intelligence.
Other conditionsAutism is one of several types of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), once known as pervasive developmental disorders. It is not unusual for autism to be confused with other ASDs, such as Asperger's syndrome, or to have overlapping symptoms. A similar condition is called unspecified neurodevelopmental disorder. This condition occurs when children display similar behaviors but do not meet the criteria for autism. Also, other conditions with similar symptoms may also have similarities to or occur with autism.
Hey, high functioning autism gives you above-average intelligence. Thanks, autism!
