There are many. Autism Speaks has a good website (just Google it), but also remember that everyone has characteristics of autism, so it's more complicated than looking at an online checklist and marking things off.

Some good things to watch for at this age are social smiles (smiling in response to smiling), joint attention (following a point or verbal cue to look at something distant), anticipation of social routines (do they seem to know what's coming when you're playing peek a boo or similar games), sensory differences (hypersensitive to sound, light, touch).
