Brief Answer:
Autism screening can be done online

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Based on the description it does not seem concerning. Nevertheless, I would insist you to visit https://m-chat.org/en-us/page/take-m-chat-test/online and answer the questionnaire. Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised (M-CHAT-R) is a standardized test for screening of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). In case the test shows low risk, you need not worry. In case the test indicates risk, you would need to visit a child psychiatrist and get the child evaluated.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards

Brief Answer:
Will take some time to develop

Detailed Answer:
Since the risk is low you need not worry. It is very normal for a child of this age not to share things. Give it some time. As the child grows, the child will learn to share.
