This presentation is based on new methodologies that are recently present in different psychodynamic approaches who are multidimensional combining in one, offering integrative view in understanding and serving treatment for autism spectrum disorders(ASD).Today many definitions (Abrahams & Geschwind, 2008; Bailey et al., 1995; Baron-Cohen et al., 2009; O’Roak & State, 2008; Veenstra- Vanderweele & Cook, 2004, Cullinane, 2016,), show that Autism Spectrum Disorders(ASD) are neurodevelopmental disorder which are characterized by symptoms manifested in mostly four areas; communication skills, social interaction skills, different types of behavioral skills, and general cognitive skills. Because of that, many clinical and etiological symptoms are heterogenous, that’s why diagnostic symptoms variate from many different components. Children with ASD have unique symptoms, they need to receive treatment that meets their specific needs. In earlier decades, where treatment focus was on cognitive and behavioral changes. In now days, approaches as play therapy, behavioral therapy, applied behavioral analysis(ABA), relationship development intervention(RDI), speech therapy(Logotherapy), and occupational therapy, are competitive to each other by trying to have primate in social media environment. One approach may play incredible efforts to show dominant position among others. In recent days new developments of different modalities in psychotherapy, offers new approaches that are not focusing only in “old” symptoms and manifestations, but also having a new developments in neuroscience and medical technology.
