Quoted From: https://www.thrivebehavioral.com/topics/autism/

"The hallmark of ASD is impaired social interaction. As early as infancy, and generally by preschool age, children with ASD may be less or overly responsive to touch, make poor eye contact, struggle to understand social cues, such as voice or facial expressions, and fail to enjoy imaginative and interactive playing. Inflexible adherence to repetitive movements and certain objects, as well as difficulty handling social stimulation can lead to dramatic temper outbursts. Communication difficulties are evident early, as children with ASD generally talk late. Some speak in a song-like voice about a narrow range of topics, and they often struggle when it comes to talking with other children."
