Well, I am not a doctor and I cannot provide you with a definite diagnosis, but my cousin Mavrick who was born with autism, had the same symptoms you describe here. From what I know, symptoms of autism can vary greatly. These symptoms could be signs of mile autism, but they can also indicate Attention Deficit Disorder(ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If you continue to see these symptoms regularly I would consult your pediatrician. :) God Bless You.
