Lack of Eye Contact (Smiles Briefly)

Video Summary

A lack of eye contact can be a warning sign for autism. Although both Evan's mother, Raquel, and the evaluator, Connor, persistently try to elicit eye contact and a smile from Evan, he avoids direct eye contact throughout the interaction. Though Evan eventually offers a brief smile after several attempts, he does not look at his mother who is directly in front of him.
