Sortir de l'autisme: Parents, ces vérités qu’on vous cache

By Henri Rey-Flaud

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 edition 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.
