  • Have delayed skills in speech and language (reading, writing, talking)
  • They ‘parrot’ what other people say rather than constructing their own answers and questions

  • Have repetitive physical motions (rocking, running, spinning, flapping)
  • Have a hard time adapting to small changes in their routine

What to Expect from our Autism Quiz for Toddlers

Autism is not diagnosed through blood or imaging tests, rather it is observed over time through behavior and a toddler’s developmental progress. Not meeting the basic developmental requirements of toddlers their age is typically what indicates autistic tendencies.

Autism, if approached properly, can be detected at a young age. The common early age for diagnosis is around 2 to 3 years old, though some toddlers as young as 18 months can be properly diagnosed. When it comes to autism, the earlier your toddler is diagnosed the better. This means you can take quick action in providing them with the treatment they need.

Below is a quiz for autistic signs and behaviors to see if your 1-3 years old toddler could potentially have autism. It’s very important to note that this online autism test is in no way a proper or medical diagnosis for your toddler. This is simply a detailed list of symptoms that point towards autistic tendencies.

If your toddler has some symptoms on this checklist, then your next consideration should be to consult your pediatrician, neurologist, psychologist, or psychiatrist to get a proper diagnosis.
