Interaction With the Environment

Babies who don't respond to loud noises may be showing one of the signs of autism. Most babies exhibit a startle effect if a dog barks nearby. Babies showing signs of autism often do not.

These babies also might show little or no interest in objects held in front of them that typically interest babies. They also don't point at objects, and they may not recognize familiar people.1‘Autism: Early Signs in Infants and Toddlers.’ Autism Science Foundation. autismsciencefoundation.org/what-is-autism/early-signs-of-autism/resources-for-recognizing-signs,2‘Signs and Symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders.’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/signs.html
