Symptoms of Mild Autism - If you've been searching for the symptoms of autism and haven't felt that they match the characteristics your child has been exhibiting, that may mean that he has a mild form of the disorder. This mild form of autism is also referred to as high functioning autism or Asperger's syndrome. In this type of autism, children have a lower degree of the classic symptoms, and sometimes people may not even notice them until they read each of the symptoms.
