    The case that will be presented is on an autistic child patient and the working through process. The use of language through forms of expression and its interlope on the child’s environment. The child’s use of the space and the analyst as a place to transition and belong. The technological functions inside and out and parallel processes as a way to relate to reality.

    "Music Becomes Communication in a Selectively Mute Adolescent"


    This is a case example of the Child Analyst’s opportunity to follow this 13 yo female. The hope was to decrease anxiety and allow communication in words as she had suffered years of trauma. Bringing this adolescent to recognize her wants and encouraging her parents to support her growth was integral.
