The number of autistic children is getting higher and higher in each year; however no one knows for sure the definite causes of disease. Many people prefer to say that their children suffer from Down syndrome than autism. This thinking appears since there is not much information about autism. As the result, the autistic children could not have appropriate education and treatment. Therefore, based on this fact, the writer tried to conduct a research to help the autistic children to study English vocabulary, so they will have the same change and opportunity to have bright future for their own and apply that language when they are taking vacations with their parents. Before conducting the research, the writer determined the problem statement which was stated as "Do autistic children who are taught using pictures get better score then those who are assigned to in learning English vocabulary?” During the data collection, the writer used the Quasi Research Design, she used the classes without randomization. Then, she determined the population and the sample of the study. The population of the study was autistic children in Surabaya. The sample of the study was the autistic students in SD Kristen Kasih Karunia Surabaya. The sample was divided into two groups which each group consisted of seventeen autistic students. The autistic children who were in the experimental group were taught with pictures. The autistic children who were in the control group were taught without pictures as the media of teaching English vocabulary. Each group was trained by two different therapists who were assumed that they had the same English mastery and the same teaching experience. During the treatment, the therapist taught three different materials - animals, plants, and part of the body. These materials were taken from Junior, Post Junior and Headmaster in English. Then, the writer moved forward to analyzing the data, after analyzing all the data, the writer found out that the autistic children who were taught using pictures got better score than those autistic children who were assigned to memorize the vocabulary. Therefore, the writer concluded that teaching vocabulary using pictures as the media of teaching help the autistic children in learning language. Furthermore, the writer suggested that the time allocation for conducting this research should be more than six months in order to have more accurate data and get involved with the teaching learning process.
