CALZAVARA, Maria Gláucia Pires  e  SILVA, Beatriz de Souza. The function of the object in an autism clinic. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2018, vol.11, n.1, pp. 72-82. ISSN 1983-3482.

This article is the assumption that the object is presented as an important tool in relation to the treatment of children. Such as the free association in the clinic with adults, the objects in the clinic with children have themselves a technical and a mediation function between the analyst and the child. In the treatment with autistic subjects, this technique is also important, since we know these children maintain a very particular relationship with objects. From this, the purpose of this article is to elucidate the function of the object in the psychoanalytic clinic with autistic subjects. Therefore, we need to demonstrate how the object, as a necessary tool in the clinic with children, can participate in the subjectivity of the child at the time of its psychic constitution. This object can be presented either as a toy or as any object and the use of it by the child will represents its importance for the treatment. Aiming to go through such questions, a literature review was performed covering authors working in the clinic with children, such as Anna Freud and Melanie Klein, as well as authors who dedicate themselves to the clinic with autistic subject, such as Tustin, Maleval, Rosine, and Robert Lefort. Thus, what is clear in the clinical practice with children, as well as in clinical autism, is that the object, which contributes to the particular construction of the subject, can be used as a possibility of work in analysis.
