This is the support statement received from Judy Barron in reaction to the documentary “The Wall or psychoanalysis put to the test for autism” by Sophie Robert depicting the use of psychoanalysis in autism in France.
Judy Barron is the Mother of Sean Barron, an adult with Autism. Both co-authored the book “There’s a boy there”.
I just watched the footage with the horrifying band of psychologists / psychiatrists sharing their ignorance on the subject of autism. It’s as if they’re speaking from the 1950′s. Have they learned nothing in all the intervening years? How profoundly harmful to any parents & teachers who see this”
