Les pieds d’Antoine : que peut nous apprendre l’observation de la façon dont les enfants porteurs d’autisme utilisent leurs pieds ?

Abstract : When I first meet Antoine, I learn that he regularly bites the sole of his feet. A question is therefore raised: what does he express by this act and how can we offer him other means to experiment and discover during psychomotricity sessions? The relation established between us leads me to observe that he explores plantar tactile stimulations in order to experience his body limits and ground supports, these perceptions being necessary to ensure the proper construction of his corporal envelope and anchoring. Enriched by a research on cultural symbolisms related to feet, these psychomotor observations invite me to propose various motor, sensory play and symbolic play games to him. For Antoine, this results in an incipient identity structuring, which leads to structuring of language and an increasing attention regarding others and his environment.
