To evaluate the index quality of life (QL) in bearers of including upset of the development. 20 autistic children, between 4 and 12 years, submitted to the diagnostic evaluation by autistic traces scale-ATA and for the Vineland adaptive behavior scales, needing to obtain in this a quotient of superior development over 70. The data about QL were obtained by the scale of quality of life-AUQEI and compared from the application of Vineland and of AUQEI in a population of normal children, resembling in the sex and in the age. In the evaluation of the ATA, average was 33.75 with 4.95 standard deviation. The indexes of Vineland suggest that normal children have larger probability to present level of appropriated adaptative behavior than autistic children (p=0.0196). Concerning QL, the general indexes are the same for both groups, indicating positive QL (p=0.744). In the sub domain autonomy, autistic children present higher index (p=0.0048). Autistic children present similar indexes of QL than normal children.64295-9
