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).
