Asperger’s syndrome is one of the disorders of the autism spectrum which is characterized by great difficulties in social interaction. People afflicted with this syndrome have limited interests and repetitive behavior. Language and cognitive development are however relatively well preserved with respect to other difficulties of the autistic spectrum. Even if they are not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and an atypical usage of language is usually reported.
This syndrome is named after the pediatrician Hans Asperger for his work in 1943, where he describes children who have difficulty in non verbal communication, a low level of empathy for their peers, and physical clumsiness. His work was not revealed to the world until 1981 by Lorna Wing and then later translated into English by Uta Frith in 1995. It has thereafter received significant media coverage.
The exact cause or causes of of Asperger’s syndrome are still unknown. Some researchers attribute a genetic cause to it. Gut flora could also equally be the cause. However, brain imaging techniques have not identified any clear or common pathological phenomenon.

When diagnosis is established, multidisciplinary care and management with different complementary techniques is proposed. However, the effectiveness of some interventions is difficult to estimate since data on the subject is still limited. Care and management is centered on behavioral therapies, which concentrate on specific deficits: weak communication capacity, weak communication abilities, obsessive and repetitive routines, physical clumsiness. Most children get better as they turn into adults, but social and communication difficulties may persist.
Some researchers like Simon Baron-Cohen and people with Asperger’s syndrome have posed the question whether Asperger’s syndrome should be considered as a difference rather than a handicap that needs to be treated and healed.
Handicapping limitations, especially socially, are associated with a singularity which sometimes reveals itself to be an exceptional competency.
My working technique with autistic people is new and consists of taking up month upon month, the intra-uterine period accompanied by the child and his mother and adding to that the EMDR technique.
The child is thus placed on his mother’s knees, and is carried by her in uterine fusion. The unfolding of a new relation happens which allows me to find the traumatic moment which caused the disconnection of certain neurons in the child’s brain.
My work consists of giving the reptilian brain, a new reflex.Given that the mother and the child are together, the relation is comfortable and in a few sessions there is a radical evolution of behavior.From the end of the first session itself, a new connection forms and change is invariably reported by the mother if it is of traumatic nature.
