The purpose of this paper is to describe contour intonation transfiguration of autistic childrens declarative speech. Autistic childrens speech is unique when it is compared with normal childrens speech. Sometimes the speech of autistic children makes the adult think critically to understand the meaning of the speech. Their phonological abilities are very limited to be understood by others. It is also influenced by the intonation that accompanies the speech. The contour intonation is depicted at the end of the sound or utterance decreased. Contour intonation which is up and down can be a misinterpretation to understand the meaning of speech of autistic children. Transfiguration of up and down contour intonation may differ even if the meaning of the sentence is the same. This is because autistic children speak with different word choices and sentence structures. They speak naturally and spontaneously, so sometimes they babble at will. The methods used in the data collection are observation and interview. The data is collected by recording autistic childrens speech. The data of this research is Indonesian declarative sentences. The data analysis used in the study is qualitative descriptive.
