Les études concernant la psychopathologie des autismes sont très peu développées dans le champ des méthodes projectives. Cet ouvrage présente les facteurs d'analyse des évolutions concourant au diagnostic de l'état autistique et permettant l'accès aux voies identificatoires et aux processus de pensée. La mise au jour de ces facteurs donne lieu à un approfondissement de l'analyse de l'état autistique: entrevoir les différents destins dans la construction du fonctionnement psychique et cognitif du sujet, apprécier les effets des traitements thérapeutiques et leurs évolutions.

Dans un style vif et franc, ce livre relate, dans sa plus grande partie, le cheminement émotif une jeune enfant malade et celui, plus « secret » et intérieur, de sa mère. Le quotidien familial, entre la maison et hôpital, évoque tous les impacts physiques et psychologiques de la maladie chez enfant. Ce point de vue est appuyé par deux textes de soignants qui se trouvent au coeur même de cet accompagnement si particulier de enfant et de sa famille, deux textes porteurs observations concrètes et de réflexions concernant, entre autres, hospitalisation de enfant aux besoins particuliers et humanisation des soins dans notre système de santé.

Abstract
Sexual health and sexuality can be difficult subjects for parents and caregivers to broach with autistic children, made more challenging when children are at the severe end of the autism spectrum. Some parents may even question the validity of teaching sexuality to those who are severely autistic. This handbook guides you through the process of teaching about sex and sexuality, offers to answer questions such as: Why is it necessary to teach this subject to my severely autistic child? When is the right time to start talking about these issues? How detailed and explicit should I be? What methods are most appropriate? It addresses male and female issues separately and covers public and private sexual behaviours, sexual abuse, cross-gender teaching and liaising with school, in addition to the more obvious areas such as physical changes and menstruation.

Abstract
Salut! Je m?appelle Coralie. J?ai 8 ans. J?ai de grandes oreilles, des taches de rousseur et les cheveux bouclés. J?ai un petit frère, Léo. On se ressemble beaucoup. En même temps, il est très différent de moi, car il est autiste. Sais-tu ce que c?est, l?autisme? L?autisme est une condition qui affecte la capacité de communiquer et d?entrer en relation avec les autres, en plus de restreindre les intérêts de la personne. Ceci est dû au fonctionnement différent du cerveau des personnes autiste. Quand mes parents m?ont annoncé que mon petit frère était autiste, je leur ai demandé s?il allait arrêter de l?être un jour. Mes parents m?ont répondu que non. Ce n?est pas une maladie : ça ne se guérit donc pas. J?ai mis du temps à comprendre comment mon petit frère se sent et comment il perçoit le monde qui l?entoure. Quand des amis viennent à la maison, ils trouvent mon frère différent. Et moi je leur dis que je suis chanceuse d?avoir Léo comme petit frère : il est unique!

This revised and updated edition takes a fresh look at what it's like to grow up as the brother or sister of a child with autism--the basics of sibling relationships at all ages and how autism can affect these dynamics. Parents get important advice about balancing responsibilities for each child, encouraging their kids to share feelings, explaining autism to other children, and initiating play and interaction between siblings.
This new edition includes case examples reflecting improvements in applied behavior analysis (ABA) techniques, new photos, an updated resource section, and tips on how technology can help siblings and their families connect with other families. Throughout the book, family case studies provide insights into how other families deal with common concerns and situations.

Abstract
Anxiety is the root cause of many of the difficulties experienced by people on the autism spectrum, and is often caused by things such as a change in routine, or sensory overload. Deborah Lipsky takes a practical look at what happens when things spiral out of control, exploring what leads to meltdowns and and tantrums, and what can be done to help. Drawing on her own extensive personal experience and using real-life examples to explain how autistic people think, the author distinguishes between meltdowns and tantrums, showing how they are different, how each can begin, and most importantly, how to identify triggers and prevent outbursts from happening in the first place. Practical and simple solutions to avoiding anxiety are offered throughout, and these are accompanied by calming techniques and suggestions for dealing with tantrums when they occur. This book will be an essential read for those on the autism spectrum, their families and friends, professionals working with them, and anybody else with an interest in autism spectrum conditions.
