The modeling of a complex system for teaching students with autism demands a systematic approach. After the consideration of this system as a set of components, it is necessary to analyze various factors and formal connections between them. The structural analysis of the system reveals its composition and internal structure. As a tool of the functional structure presentation, it is advisable to use a unified modeling language. The system of formation of IT teaching complex is one of the subsystems of teaching students with autism. A recommender system seems to be a helpful tool to synthesize an information and technology complexes for teaching students with autism. It assumed, that such recommender system generates a proposal for the composition of the relevant information and technology complex, the components of which are the components of the IT platform, selected and combined in accordance with the requirements and needs of the paraprofessionals for the effective resolution of the formulated educational task.
