We propose a description of the ecological approach in relation to autism with the ultimate aim of seeking, through a structured pedagogical process declined on several scientifically proven methods, a new way of understanding the values of the individual and the community that takes into accounts the specificity of each. The focus of the article can be traced to the importance of experiencing nature and contact with it through activities that go to reinforce the concepts of biodiversity and neurodiversity, considered an extension of biodiversity, and at the same time to trace a therapeutic path understood here as a life path.
