My 5 year old Step Daughter is struggling with communication and interaction

I am in need of some advice as me and my partner are lost what to do, we have noticed since my partners daughter has left nursery she has started to go backwards on her learning.
We only have her on a weekend so we only get chance to see how she is doing with her learning then.
We have noticed she struggles really bad with communication even the simplest of things like asking for a drink.
She will just linger round a spot and we have to guess what she wants,We have also noticed that her attention span is nil.
We have received a copy of her school report and every one of our concerns have been highlighted by teachers also.
they are stating she does not play with other children without been prompted by a adult and will not answer any questions without been prompted again by a adult.
We are really concerned could this be a sign of autism ? we are wanting to look into this further as her mother does not seem worried about it.

thank you in advance for your help and advice
