The following paper aims to introduce the main axes in the contemporary debate regarding the Lacanian psychoanalytic approach of autism. Different autobiographic writings by autistic people are here referred in order to untangle what they can bear witness to in relation to what allowed them a way out of their autistic withdrawal. The research on which this paper is based emphasizes the importance of the recognition that psychoanalysis makes of the autistic person as a subject with full rights and the fundamental role it plays in the contemporary debates regarding a possible treatment for autism.
