Early studies involving childhood autism attributed to family involvement in impairment of psycho-emotional development of the child. The purpose of this study was to review the literature related to autism and family in two national databases (Theses Database of Capes and Scientific Electronic Library Online) without defining a specific period as well as identify the main thematic focused. Were located 29 studies in Theses Database of Capes, the first record in 1990 and 12 in Scientific Electronic Library Online, the first publication in 2001. The results were grouped into seven categories. The categories "Quality of Life" and "Family Relations" concentrate most of publications on Theses Database. Already in Scientific Electronic Library Online, mostly refers to the "Family Relations" and "literature review". It was found that none of theses or dissertations was published in scientific paper format, hampering the dissemination of research in the area.
