Title: Embodied Autism An integrated approach through Psychology, Pedagogy and Neuroscience
Abstract: Starting moving from the meeting ground of Neuroscience, Psychology and Pedagogy, my paper is aimed at interpreting autism under a new perspective provided by a change of paradigm in the cognitive sciences. Such paradigm favours a point of view of the embodiment type, which ascribes a great value to body and to sensory-motor system. Furthermore it analyses thoroughly mind in its multifaceted dimensions: embodied, embedded, extended, enacted. Such paradigm acquires a very peculiar meaning when applied to autism and to the austistic individual, embodied in a body and deep rooted in the environment, who not only takes a different view of the world, but perceives, assimilates, introjectes and develops it through sensory-perceptive peculiarities. Such peculiarities active the underlying cognitive and neural process and influence the general development.
