Abstract .This paper presents the preliminary study of the tablet acceptance among children with high functioning autism. Children who were diagnosed with high functioning autism have an IQ score of 80 or above. Generally, their autism characteristics are not obvious and often they are mistakenly undeserved as having a low profile characteristic. The discussion is generally based on observation of three sample high functioning autism children, feedback from distributed questionnaire to all of 20 caregivers at National Autism Society of Malaysia (main center at Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur) and interview with autism specialist from the same organization. This preliminary study will help to see on the tablets potential of becoming a new assertive technology device as a pacing technology for autism children.
