Children who have autism do not possess appropriate social behavior. They are unable to manage their social contacts through non-verbal and verbal expression. They typically cannot emotionally handle healthy and balanced relationships with others. This issue includes their peers and authority. They have difficulties producing and understanding speech.

They sometimes have sleeping problems, and they may not need as much sleep as other children their age. They may also have neurological problems, such as seizures and sensitivity to light and sound. Speech delay is a deferral in the use of the development of mechanisms, producing speech.

Children with speech delay have some communication skills enough to establish relationships, even though it may be harder for them than it is for the average child. Children with speech delays can compensate for their difficulty with speech with non-verbal behavior. There may be, however, decreased reading and learning, and reciprocating skills with speech delay.
