Abstract: This study aimed to show the significant relationships between emotion and behavior variables among throughout the behavioral modification learning processes in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

A quasi- experimental research design pre- tests - post- test was realized. A total of 10 years old children with ASD level 1, who have been distributed into two groups, an experimental group (n= 5), whom a sensory integrated behavior program was applied and a control group (n=5), whom a behavioral modification “Stimulus”- “Response”- “Readjustment” (S-R) program has been applied.

Results found through Mann-Whitney U Test and Pearson Correlation Test showed that there´re significant differences between both groups and, above all, great relationships are indicated between the emotional and behavioral variables found as a result of the learning process.
