This research discusses the possibilities and challenges of proposing groups with autistic children in CAPSi’s. We carried out a bibliographic survey of the theme in Psychoanalysis and proposed an intervention research that was characterized by observations from 16 group sessions in a CAPSi in the interior of Goiás and narrative interviews with the mothers of the children participating in the research. Throughout the work, we discussed the evolution of the concept of autism in Psychoanalysis and changes in theory and technique in the face of this psychopathological specificity; on the group formation process; the theoretical group assumptions coined by René Kaës and the possibility of groups with mediating objects; on the functioning of CAPSi and the psychosocial care policy for children and adolescents. At the end, triangulation of the data was carried out and perspectives of analysis were raised about the group reality and the groups with mediating objects with autistic children. We understand that this specificity of action is still incipient, requiring further studies. However, we see potentialities in the group intervention proposal to work on several demands such as difficulties in associative capacity, in the perception of oneself and the other, in interaction, among others that are commonly present in autism. In our research, the results indicate that there was a positive evolution in all participating children.
