Hanen Speech-Language Pathologist, Fay McGill, talks about some of the traits or behaviours you might see in young children on the autism spectrum. While having one or more of these traits does not mean a child has autism, it’s important to be aware of them so that you can consult a professional for guidance if you are concerned about your child’s communication.

Note: The examples in this video represent a few traits that may co-occur with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This is not a complete list and this video does not replace the advice of a medical professional. If you are concerned about your child’s development, consult your doctor.

The Hanen Centre is a not-for-profit organization committed to promoting the best possible language, social and literacy skills in young children. We believe that parents and caregivers have the biggest influence on children’s early language learning and that the best learning happens during the everyday interactions they have together. We created this channel as part of our efforts to share practical, research-based information with these important people in children’s lives so that they can nurture the early skills that make a life-long difference for all children.

We aim to educate and raise awareness of Hanen programs and their concepts. This channel is for parents, caregivers, speech language pathologists and other professionals working with young children.
