Abstract: Autism is a developmental disability with a triad of impairments. Play is a platform for all types of development. The children with autism exhibit hampered play development when compared to the normal children. Hence the researcher has undertaken a descriptive study on the perspectives of play behaviour in children with autism. It is a study with a sample of 200 children with autism undergoing training in the Special Schools/Intervention Centres in Tiruchirappalli District. The results showed that the age of diagnosis and the degree of autism had an impact in their overall play behaviour. The parents and special teachers need to be oriented to identify the impairment early so as to enhance better rehabilitation and services which will make them independent in the society. Regular training and workshops need to be organized for Parents and Special Educators to update their information and motivate them to be more committed to strengthen play behaviour among the children with autism.
