We measured the fundamental financial knowledge and the level of using basic financial offers by persons with Asperger syndrome. It was pilot study. The method of diagnostic survey was used. The questionnaire used in the study was authorship, developed on the basis of S&P Global FinLit Survey, conducted by World Bank Development Research Group and GFLEC. The purposive sampling was used for this aim. 32 persons aged 16-22 with Asperger syndrome took part in the study. The results show that respondents are able to use theoretical knowledge acquired in the process of education and know the mechanism of simple and compound interest. Unfortunately, they have a significantly lower level of knowledge than an average citizen in the field of less standard issues, and reveal problems in practical use of the mentioned knowledge. It is recommended to expand the financial education and introduction of special programs for persons with communication disorders.
