This research attempts to find out diverse language and communication impairments of the autistic children. These children have problems in phonology, syntax, semantics, morphology and so on. Again, they also experience different types of difficulties in their everyday discourse. The lack of the theory of mind is considered to be one of the most significant reasons behind their communication impairments. Along with this theory, other theories from Psycholinguistics and Discourse Analysis are used to identify and explain the impairments. For the empirical data, a survey was conducted with the use of both qualitative and quantitative method. This paper concluded with some proposals on what steps should be taken to overcome the limitations which were found during the research.
