Materials and Methods: This study was a causal-comparative that including 30 children ( 15 girls and 15 boys) with ASD, who elected by random sampling. Data analysis was done using SPSS-16 and T-student test. Results: Results of t- tests showed significant differences between the two groups, autistic and normal children in the expressive language skill, cognitive and received language skill (P<0.05). There is a big difference between the mean scores of test Niosha in subjects with autism compared to standard scores. Conclusion: According to the findings of the present study, the language disorder in children with autism compared to normal children is significantly higher.
