The website "Listening to the autistics" was build by a collective of practitioners oriented by psychoanalysis and who have worked together for several years. The aim of this collective is to intervene in the political debates about the most suitable treatments for autism and about its clinical specificity, based on the autistic subjects' own testimonies. The autistic subjects invite us to trust their inventions, no matter how small they may be, highlighting that they have a function, not just in tempering their fears, but as therapeutic tools. After listening to Jean Claude Maleval in this interview, do visit this innovative and enriching website: http://autistes-et-cliniciens.org
