Understanding what is happening inside your body: Interoceptive Training for All Ages
Some people with neurodevelopmental differences have a hard time noticing signals from their bodies or being able to tell what they mean. Interoception is the sensory system that lets us know when we need to eat, drink water, or use the washroom. It is also the sensory system that allows us to know when we are becoming upset or anxious. Autistic researchers and colleagues from South Australia created a curriculum for schools to help teach students better interoception skills. AIDE Canada joined with Dr. Wenn Lawson, an Autistic researcher from South Australia, to adapt this curriculum for an online course. Links to the full curriculum are included.
