This work is included in a wider research project started on 2003 with autistic patients and their families. In this context we’ll just expose treatments about families where the child diagnosed as autistic has an age between 3 and 18 years. The restriction of the group is given by the choice of displaying similar situations where children are living with their families and attend school in an integrated way. So we present a psychotherapeutic method which is totally similar to that usually used by the authors when the patient is a child. The approaching way as well, already experimented for a long time by the authors and proposed in other writings, here sheds light upon its amazing efficiency within family therapy, especially with patients who are neglected by systemic therapists, because they are children and above all because they are non-speaking children.
