Abstract: The principle of a clinical setting, created in a centre for autistic children in Greece (The Perivolaki 3), was based on the combination of different mediations within a given group workshop: reproducing sounds, movements, drawings and then reformulating the patterns in a different register. In this article I propose the theoretical-clinical support of this setting on psychoanalytic and neurocognitive data and hypotheses related to the processes of intrasubjective linking and intersubjective links, which I consider to be co-emerging, during normal development and in early pathologies (autisms). Transmodality, affective tuning, primary symbolizations and metaphorization processes are also questioned by this double point of view.
