autism spectrum disorders, socio-economic aspects, social support, pedagogical aspects


The relevance of this work lies in the need to create prerequisites for overcoming the gap between the relatively deep development of medical and social, pedagogical, psychological aspects and the slurring in understanding the socio-economic aspect of the problem of socialization of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The purpose of this article was to identify, based on the study of modern Russian and foreign studies, those conditions and circumstances that directly or indirectly set the direction and priorities in the formation of the socio-economic base for the socialization of a child with autistic disorder. And of course, this activity cannot be directed only at the child in isolation, it cannot but affect his parents. After all, such a family, in addition to their normal life activities, is also busy raising a “special” child with an ASD diagnosis. It should be taken into account that the socialization of such a child inevitably requires additional moral, physical, and, which for us is an independent subject of research, increased material and financial costs from parents. Final positioning concept is formulated in the paper.
