Summary/Abstract: The essential element of the clinical picture of autism spectrum disorders is difficulties in processing social-emotional information and reacting appropriately to signals of emotional significance. Up to date the studies have indicated that on physiological level emotional reactions of autistic people are only slightly disordered, and the main problem lies in realizing and interpreting what they experience. The results of numerous studies on recognizing emotions by facial expressions are ambiguous. The article presents selected aspects of emotional development of autistic children, the knowledge of which is indispensable for conducting a complex therapy, and indicates the methods thanks to which such a development can occur.
