Introduction: Children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder are a group of children who suffer from odd and strange problems in the interpersonal relationship, social interaction with peer groups and others, verbal skills and daily living interests, and behaviors and movements. These problems can lead to several psychological and emotional disturbances in their family. Conclusion: Beside the rehabilitation, education and therapeutic interventions as well as art and music therapy, several investigations have shown that psychodrama or theatre therapy is a beneficial approach for the children with autism spectrum disorder associated with cognitive, perceptual and verbal function difficulties. The studies have shown that theatre therapy improves the symptoms of autism spectrum disorder in children. The present article discusses the importance of theatre and psychodrama in the treatment of children with autism spectrum disorder.
