When to seek help for Autistic Spectrum Disorder in Children

See a developmental paediatrician if your child

  • Has delayed speech and language skills
  • Doesn’t make eye contact
  • Cannot initiate communication or engage in a conversation
  • Cannot or has difficulty interacting with peers
  • Has no friends in school
  • Shows poor imaginative/pretend play

The paediatrician will arrange for the needed checks and advise appropriate management and school placement. This is important to maximise potential for development in your child. Your child will also be monitored over the years.
