Red flags need to be noticed as someone’s child does not keep pace with other children of similar age and this often leads to visits to a medical specialist. Such visits, throughout the world, have found that around one-percent of the earth’s population or roughly one out of 68 children, exhibits some symptoms of the autistic spectrum.

According to the researcher Paul Shattuck at Drexel University, there are some of the stereotype behaviors of autism which consists of hand flapping, stemming, anti-social skills, and diminished communication.
