This thesis has explored the economic impact of Childhood Autism Spectacular Disorders (hereinafter referred to as ASD) through a literature review of existing research. The economic impact is firstly imposed on the family of the child and secondly on society. The research of bibliographic sources was performed through Internet search. The multidimensional structure of ASD (it varies from case to case), the difficulty and cost of diagnosing it, as well as the dramatic increase in children diagnosed with such a disorder worldwide coupled with significant differences in the systems of social care structures and state-funded methods of financial assistance between countries has made the comparison particularly difficult for the researcher. Generally, the cost of caring for children with ASD is a burden on the child's family. The state contribution is in all cases more or less insufficient, with the result that significant sacrifices are required from the caregivers of the child with ASD. Exploring the economic impact of ASD on society in general is a necessary process to address the problem of what is considered to become a pandemic in the near future which in the future will burden the societies of all the countries of the world. In order to achieve this, the researcher found that it was necessary to organize repeated research surveys separately for every aspect of the problem at regular intervals and to as large a sample of the population as possible.
