I have written about the problem extensively, both on this blog and in my book The Last Psychoanalyst. The medical health establishment in France, controlled in large part by psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic thinking has been derelict in its treatment of autistic children.
Filmmaker Sophie Robert brought the problem to public attention in her 2011 documentary film: The Wall. Three of the psychoanalysts represented therein sued Robert for defamation. They won the first trial in a district court and eventually lost on appeal.
For those who do not know French we now have the full story in English along with an English translation of the text of The Wall.
For those who want to know how French psychoanalysts—both Lacanian and not—see autism and to study the full story of this film and what happened to a filmmaker who ran afoul of psychoanalysts who belong to the major Lacanian organization in France, the Ecole de la Cause Freudienne (trans. The Wholly Freudian Church) the history and the transcript should be illuminating.
