Quelle prise en cost pour l’enfant autiste ? Les mom and dad, qui bien souvent ne connaissent ni les principes ni les effets des trois approches dominantes de l’autisme, sont tragiquement démunis face à cette question.
Aujourd’hui, le comportementalisme tient le haut du pavé. Avec lui, on espère obtenir – et on obtient quelquefois – une version minimale à l’espace social ordinaire : prise des repas, hygiène corporelle, utilisation des transports, conduite dans les lieux publics. Mais au prix de quelle violence ? de quelle dénaturation de l’enfant ? À l’inverse, le « non-agir » initié dans les Cévennes, il y a près d’un demi-siècle, par Fernand Deligny défend l’idée que les autistes, représentants d’une humanité primitive, doivent être, comme les peuples premiers, respectés dans ce qu’ils sont et préservés du monde « civilisé », au risque d’être laissés à leur native.
La psychanalyse, repensée, réinventée, libérée des pratiques obsolètes, suggest une troisième voie. Substituant une clinique du regard à celle de l’écoute et donnant l. a. priorité à l’accueil et au « tissage » quotidien, elle entreprend d’amener l’autiste non pas à nous mais à lui-même, afin de faire apparaître, à terme, un enfant qui ne soit pas seulement présentable, montrable, mais, comme les autres, « rêvable » par ses parents.
Telle est assurément l. a. sortie de l’autisme – respectueuse de l’enfant – qu’on est en droit d’attendre aujourd’hui.

Did Christ ever call his disciples to him at a mass meeting? ” with the rest, when even the rock named Peter showed signs of wavering? And are not Jesus and Paul prototypes of those who, trusting their inner experience, have gone their own individual ways, disregarding public opinion? This argument should certainly not cause us to overlook the reality of the situation confronting the Church. When the Church tries to give shape to the amorphous mass by uniting individuals into a community of believers with the help of suggestion and tries to hold such an organization together, it is not only performing a great social service, but it also secures for the individual the inestimable boon of a meaningful life form.
That is to say, the moment the word, as a result of centuries of education, 54 philosophical and the psychological approach to life attains universal validity, it severs its original link with the divine person. There is then a personiﬁed Church, a personiﬁed State; belief in the word becomes credulity, and the word itself an infernal slogan capable of any deception. With credulity come propaganda and advertising to dupe the citizen with political jobbery and compromises, and the lie reaches proportions never known before in the history of the world.
It is the speciﬁc task of psychology to provide just this knowledge and understanding. It would also be the task of the confessor zealous in the cure of souls, were it not that his oﬃce inevitably obliges him to apply the yardstick of his denominational bias at the critical moment. As a result, the individual’s right to exist as such is cut short by a collective prejudice and often curtailed in the most sensitive area. The only time this does not happen is when the religious symbol, for instance the model life of Christ, is understood concretely and felt by the individual to be adequate.
