Authors: Evan Campa, Megan Morien, Madie Szaller, Samantha Sohngen

As children grow, parents may question whether their children are reaching milestones at the appropriate time.

If children have difficulty reaching important milestones, parents may wonder whether their children are showing early signs of developmental delays or autism.

The goal of this resource is to help parents identify behaviors that may be characteristic of autism so they can seek referrals for diagnostic evaluations and learn more about therapeutic services that might be beneficial for their children.
