The story tells about the interaction between an autistic child, Francesco and his speech therapist, Monica that through the game tries to enter in contact with his apparently solipsistic reality. The therapist learns to read the “language” of the child and, through an empathetic listening, adapts the game to the answers obtained from him. The ability to adapt herself to the feedbacks, in order to create new ways to operate exceeding the uncertainty, is accompanied from the capacity to characterize and to strengthen the internal elements, to use the games chosen by Francesco, “to listen” his answers and to learn from them. The two systems (therapist and Francesco) adapt and evolve over time following signals that they receive from both the parts and the context. The actions of each one will give place to chain reactions that will have effects on the all therapy.

Abstract

The story tells about the interaction between an autistic child, Francesco and his speech therapist, Monica that through the game tries to enter in contact with his apparently solipsistic reality. The therapist learns to read the “language” of the child and, through an empathetic listening, adapts the game to the answers obtained from him. The ability to adapt herself to the feedbacks, in order to create new ways to operate exceeding the uncertainty, is accompanied from the capacity to characterize and to strengthen the internal elements, to use the games chosen by Francesco, “to listen” his answers and to learn from them. The two systems (therapist and Francesco) adapt and evolve over time following signals that they receive from both the parts and the context. The actions of each one will give place to chain reactions that will have effects on the all therapy.
