Autisme, langage et partenaire

Abstract : Objectives : Define conditions for an encounter with the autistic child. Methods : From the state-of-the-art, we have hypothesized that a link in the language would be established in a primary relationship in the sound object, such as a word. We then report the case of a young girl to illustrate how a meeting with the autistic child can build itself. Results : We highlight the elaboration of a process of communication by the child. For the clinician, to become an alive, unpredictable but bearable object, allows this child to live his/her body in the world and to be able to circulate the words, prelude in the recognition of its subjective position. Then the child can begin the construction of his/her own answer to join the world. Discussion : The particular status of the object for the autistic seems to act as a reference in clinical practice, and takes the place we could have for the child. Nevertheless, it requires a clinical plasticity allowing the invention of the possibilities of meeting, including in the recognition of what we shall call with Vidal the “descriptive equation” or “complete sentence” with Kanner. Conclusion : Thus, it is possible to be a partner of a small autistic child and to favor the invention of a certain mode of relation to the world, always singular but nevertheless shareable. This case study joins a number of studies and shows the existence of specific skills in the autistic child.
