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.

De nombreuses études ont été publiées sur le trouble du spectre de l'autisme (TSA). Malgré tout, les connaissances acquises jusqu?à présent sur ce dernier demeurent limitées. Ce paradoxe s'explique sans doute par le caractère problématique de la définition même de cette catégorie diagnostique. La grande variété des symptômes qui lui sont associés, tout comme l'étendue très large des degrés d'atteinte, font en effet du TSA un trouble particulièrement difficile à saisir et à étudier. La venue de la cinquième édition du DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) amène qui plus est de nouveaux défis en ce sens pour les chercheurs et les cliniciens.

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!

Abstract
Melanie Marsh is an American living in London with her British husband, Stephen, and their two young children. The Marshes’ orderly home life is shattered when their son Daniel is given a diagnosis of autism. Resourceful and determined not to accept what others, including her husband, say is inevitable, Melanie finds an ally in the idealistic Andy, whose unorthodox ideas may just prove that Daniel is far more “normal” than anyone imagined. Daniel Isn’t Talking is a moving story of a family in crisis, told with warmth, compassion, and humor.

Abstract
Written by child neurologists, this comprehensive, multi-authored volume on autism systematically discusses the classification, epidemiology and neurobiology of autism. Autism lacks a unique etiology or specific pathology, so the behaviorally defined social deficits, language impairments and repetitive behaviors that define autism are explored from a developmental neurology perspective. The evidence suggesting that autism is a disorder of neuronal development is reviewed by experts on the genetics, neuroanatomy and neuroradiology, neurochemistry, immunology, and neurophysiology of autism. Chapters provide comprehensive reviews of the common neurological problems associated with autism such as epilepsy, sleep disturbances and motor and sensory deficits. Neuropsychological assessment, medical and psychopharmacologic management, educational and behavioral interventions, and outcome are discussed within the clinical content of the practising neurologist. The research agenda needed to understand the neurology of autism is emphasized throughout the book and in the conclusion.

Abstract
Jan Maka was a child like any other, until his family's lives were turned upside down when it was discovered he had autism. What is it like to live with a child affected by this neurological disorder?
Through the voice of Jan's devoted mother and the comments of specialists, Anna Barczewska's touching short film introduces us to the demanding reality of autism, a condition characterized by a reduced ability to communicate with the outside world. Going beyond one family's story, A Child Unlike Any Other depicts the daily struggle of parents of autistic children and their efforts to obtain therapy. A poignant cry from the heart.

Chad is mesmerized by trains. Mikki’s passion is washers and dryers. And for Derek, life is a game show, where he is the host and anyone within listening range is a contestant. While these boys might seem like any other children, their intense obsessions are early symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome. In this program, ABC News correspondent Jay Schadler reports on that neurological disorder, which makes normal interactions with peers virtually impossible. Studies conducted by Yale University’s Fred Volkmar shed light on both the compulsive fixations and the difficulties in comprehending facial expressions that characterize Asperger’s patients.
