Summary: This article discusses a study of the body system of five autistic children. It incorporates the recognition of body parts nose, eyes, and head as well as behavioral repertoires such as the “ego”. The Behavioral Therapy was applied, in systematic sessions, as a way to reach the percentage of expected response. The data obtained during these sessions is presented in graphs. In order to see the process and the advance in each of the children, the researcher used the “unique subject and changing criteria methodology” in which the investigator changes the criteria successively to reach the consequence wanted. This is usually done in gradual steps from the base line to the desired final level (Hall,1973: 23).
