Here we present the results of a comparative study of the functionality of the preschool children with typical development (N = 52) and autism (N = 12), younger students with Asperger's syndrome (N = 13). The obtained data showed that the functionality of children with Asperger's syndrome was significantly lower (p <0,0001) compared with children with typical development, and significantly higher (p <0,00001), than of children with autism. Has been discussed the importance of the functionality research for children with autistic spectrum disorders and other developmental disorders using the questionnaire F- 07 as a way of assessment the integrative performance of common tasks and demands.

Keywords: Asperger’s syndrome, autism, functionality, preschool age, primary school age
