Autism Symptoms & Signs You Need to Know

Difficulty Understanding Social Cues

While not everyone understands all social cues, especially when they are too subtle, people with autism tend to find it very challenging to respond to these signs. As a result, social situations involving autistic people tend to be awkward and difficult. That is also the reason why they often isolate themselves and are not open to making friends with others. More specifically, autism makes you often feel mystified by the behaviors or thoughts of surrounding friends or family members. In communication, it is hard to realize that someone is becoming bored of talking with you. This leads to some inappropriate behaviors that would offend other people. [2]
