1.Weak social interaction
Children with autism cannot cooperate with other children or even with other people. It is the main symptom of the autism spectrum. One of the first things that can be noticed is that they will not respond when their name is called, and they will avoid eye contact.
2.Limited speaking skills
Spoken language is an area in which a child with autism is likely to be delayed. They have difficulty communicating when they start talking and will often find it difficult to respond. They can also repeat phrases, or speak in a monotonous voice.
3.Small ability to make friends
Because of their limited ability to have a conversation or to have a proper social interaction, they have very little ability to make friends among their peers.
While they may completely ignore certain sounds, such as people talking to them, other sounds may disturb them. This can cause them to cover their ears or make different noises in an attempt to muffle the sound. Their sense of touch can also be extremely sensitive.
An autistic child will have abnormal body movements that will be easily noticed. Without stopping at all, they repeat the movement. These can include clapping their hands, twisting and shaking.
6.Difficulty understanding and expressing emotions
Some children who are autistic may find it very difficult to understand how a child or other person is feeling. They have difficulty expressing their feelings.

Some of the children with the repetition of the words are fixed in the phrase or in a word and repeat it without stopping. This is called echolalia. This could be a word or phrase they heard from others, from adults, or even from a TV show.
8.Oriented to details
Autistic children are often detail-oriented. They will take toys and other items and line them up carefully.
