Be careful not to become too preocuupied by the mention of Autistic Disorder (or another condition along the Pervasive developmental Disorder spectrum). It is clear that your son is displaying some developmental problems. But he is only ten months old. Children of that age to not have language skills, so part of the problem is in your expectations. Early Intervention has likely assessed him in the major developmental areas. Sit down with someone and review the results piece by piece - that is, look separately at each component of development (gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, social, emotional).

Good point, but what I suggested still pertains, with the exception that one might expect more of him in the domain of communication. The guidance I offered still applies. Let the evaluation results speak for themselves.
