It is hypothesized that infantile autism could represent a defensive position with variable clinical characteristics whose expressions are notably influenced by the environment. We examined a group of ten children under the age of three who were followed up on home care. Our research focused on a double-blind correlation test between two types of data: the diagnostic on the one hand and the child video recording observation on the other hand. Certain objectivable autistic states were found in two children for which the initial diagnosis of autism were in a first time ruled out (according to DSM-III-R and French Classification). This confirms the polymorphism of children autistic states.
