Autism Spectrum Board Index

These are symptoms to worry about, from what youve written, it seems the only symptom your child is showing is not making eye contact...but if you notice anything else on the list then you may have reason to worry...

Doesn’t make eye contact (e.g. look at you when being fed).
Doesn't smile when smiled at.
Doesn't respond to his or her name or to the sound of a familiar voice.
Doesn’t follow objects visually.
Doesn't point or wave goodbye or use other gestures to communicate.
Doesn’t make noises to get your attention.

I assume youve already looked up symptoms but you didnt really mention any of these symptoms other than the eye contact one...hope this helps

oh and this might help you feel better since many the symptoms you listed seem the opposite of this...
