WithHernita, Syarifah Rauzatul Jannah, Teuku Tahlil

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. Children with ASD have difficulties with social communication and interaction, restricted interests, and repetitive behaviors. These behavior disorders can inhibit the development of ASD children. Behavioral disorders in ASD children need intervention to reduce the symptoms and improve the behavior of autistic children. The study aimed to assess the effectiveness of Audio Murottal Intervention (AMI) to improve behavior in children with Autism Syndrome Disorder (ASD). A quasi-experimental with pretest posttest control group design was used in this study. Findings show that there was a significant difference between the behavior of children with autism before and after murottal audio intervention (p=0.006). Murottal audio interventions improve the level of behavior of school-aged children with autism.
