The paper notes that social-ization of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is made even more diffi-cult by problems with interactive com-munication. The methods of bioacoustic feedback, and specifically the Tomatis method (the patient’s brain is stimulated by translating through earphones and bone conduction headset classical mu-sic, fairy tales or stimuli pronounced by the mother) are used to reduce the de-gree of manifestation of undesirable, field, aggressive or autodestructive be-havior. The empirical observation of children training by the Tomatis method for a period of two years revealed that patients with ASD who listened to the fairy tale “The Little Prince” demon-strated a more marked reduction of the level of aggression (autodestructiveness) and a higher level of kindness and read-iness to get in contact in comparison to the children who listened to the sonatas by Mozart. The authors posed a hypoth-esis that the fairy tale “The Little Prince” possesses a psycho-semantic structure forming in the child with ASD the values of empathy and communica bility, and reducing the aggressive (autoaggressive) behavior. The article analyzes the impact of the text of the fairy tale “The Little Prince” on accen-tuations of the psyche of the child with ASD. It is shown what psycho-semantic mechanisms of the text of the fairy tale form understanding and interiorization of the values by the child, in whom so-cial and personal values have not been formed yet. The article proves the spe-cific effectiveness of the bioacoustic method of Tomatis using the mother’s voice to enhance the impact of the fairy tale discourse.
