Nathan Does Not Look Mom in the Eye
Nathan does not consistently respond to his name, a key risk alert for ASD. Though he eventually walks in her direction after numerous calls, Nathan never orients to the sound of his own name. That is, he does not turn his head and look his mother in the eye when she calls him.
"Not once did he look at me in the eyes."
