Risk Alert Interest in Other Children
Dr. Deborah Fein describes the many forms that interest in other children takes a child can express agression towards another child, for example, and this may be an expression of interest in this child. What is not typical is lack of interest in other children not playing with other children, or watching them, or even acknowledging their presence in the same space.
"By the time most children are about a year old, they're really interested in other children...Children who are at risk for autism or have autism are generally not interested in other children. "
