    The purpose of this diploma was to study the development of social-pragmatic skills of children with autism. Social-pragmatic skills are very important factor in child's interaction and communication with their parents and other children. They are the basis for effective communication. Children with autism have problems exactly on the communication field. They have a hard time to connect with their surrounding, they have problems with speech development, some never develope speech, they do not establish eye contact, they poorly respond to their name, they talk about themself in a third person. Children with autism also have difficulties with playing, the absence of imaginative play is also present, they are incompetnet to start a simple game with other children or to participate in social games, they express a preference of individual play. All of this indicators belong to the complex of social-conversational skills. Results of the research show that social-pragmatic skills vary by age and also show that average scores are about the same in both group of skills, assertiveness and responsiveness, witch means that there is no significant difference between those two skills. We found out that the children with autism have the least developed social-pragmatic skills and that the typical children do not have as many problems developing social-pragmatic skills than the children with autism.
