Problems Handling Social Interactions

Difficulty with eye contact and reading body language go hand-in-hand with social interaction issues. This group of autism symptoms includes failing to listen or respond to others while communicating and showing little interest or ignoring interactions involving group activities.

Another social issue involves an endless discussion of a single subject and failing to notice the other person in the conversation isn't interested. Additionally, people with ASD have trouble understanding other people's points of view or their actions.
