Abstract: Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is a mental disorder that arises from a child's level that causes a person to act abnormal and difficult to interact or communicate with the community but this does not mean they need to be marginalised by society. These children need to have appropriate education so that they can continue their survival and thus can live like other normal societies. The purpose of this study was to identify the practice of teaching and learning of vocational education for ASD children by reviewing previous studies. Information was searched from journals via the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia's (UTM) library website and Google Scholar. The findings revealed the methods and approaches on teaching and learning vocational education in the form of use of technology, effective communication and facility conformity. Therefore, this study can help children ASD not only focus on one form, but also apply various approaches and other means.

Keywords: autism spectrum disorder; ASD; vocational education; teaching and learning; practice.
