Not Responding to Name

Video Summary

A child not responding to his name can be a possible sign of autism. In this clip, the therapist uses a variety of methods to get Nathan's attention. She calls his name, says loudly "I'm going to get you" as if initiating a social game, and finally, tickles Nathan. Despite these numerous, increasingly intrusive attempts by the therapist, Nathan never acknowledges her voice or touch.
