Kids with the same diagnosis are going to look so different.
My spectrum child is six. Reading other people (facial expressions, tone of voice (are they kidding?), etc.) just doesn't come naturally to him. His speech issues are in the realm of nonverbals/pragmatics basically.
He's very sensitive to the emotional states of others. He's uncomfortable with kids he doesn't know. His issues show up the most when you see him side by side with a neurotypical kid. He's different in interaction with other kids especially.
He's got restricted interests (in his case trains--he knows the history, the trackage, the types of engines, companies, etc. etc. etc.) and thinks/plays/dreams/talks about them constantly.
It might be more helpful to you if you shared about your child and why you suspect Aspie stuff?
