Verbal involved phonological disorder, syntactic disorder, and pragmatic disorder. In non-verbal, it involved writing. The researcher used descriptive-qualitative method, because this study explained expressive language usage of autism sufferer. The data was taken from an observation to autism sufferer and interviewing to counselor teacher, and the sufferer’s parent. The researcher used psycholinguistic theory to identify language disorder including expressive language disorder and other theory of Autism Spectrum Disorder to diagnose an autism sufferer based on the symptoms that arise. In the result, the researcher found that autism sufferer has difficulty to express his feelings, needs, and thoughts in communication especially using expressive language. Therefore, he could not express his feelings, needs, ideas to communicate appropriately through verbal and non-verbal.
