Autismes : des représentations multiples, sources de controverses

Abstract : Autism is a highly controversial field nowadays. This sociological analysis aims to study the various stages in the construction of the autism category and the transformations of the representations of autism so as to grasp the underlying issues inherent in the establishment of new definitions and representations. The parents' associations play a crucial role in these changes and help promote new educational and behavioural approaches. Paradoxically, they also account for the dwindling public involvement in long- term services provided to the autistic persons.
