MORO, Michele Paula  and  SOUZA, Ana Paula Ramos de. Interview with parents in autistic spectrum therapy. Rev. CEFAC [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.3, pp.574-587.  Epub July 29, 2011. ISSN 1982-0216.

BACKGROUND: continued interviews with mothers and fathers of subjects with autistic spectrum on the therapeutic process in speech therapy. PROCEDURES: interviews with the subjects' parents were made bi-weekly during 24 months and we account the content for the after-analysis. Data was analyzed as for the global context of the case. RESULTS: the open room for the continuous interviews was crucial for parents in order to discuss their doubts about the limitations of their children and to reflect on aspects, such as playing, communication and setting limits with their children. They also could think about their on parental function practice. This process was more intense in the group of mothers than in the fathers' group. As an effect there were better conditions in playing and in dialogic interaction among parents and children. CONCLUSION: the continued interview was perceived as a fundamental aspect of the therapeutic process conducted under the theoretical perspective that includes psychoanalysis and interactive conception of language acquisition.
