Interoception Parent Evening
October 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $40.00
Interoception is an important sense that helps us to feel internal body signals like a full bladder, growling stomach, tense muscles or speeding heart. Research indicates that our ability to clearly notice and interpret these internal body signals enables us to accurately identify and manage how we feel: Are we Anxious? Getting Frustrated? Hungry? Full? In pain? Needing the bathroom? Interoceptive differences are very common in a variety of individuals including those with autism, trauma disorders, sensory processing disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression and behavioral challenges causing significant difficulty in identifying and managing the way they feel. Interoception is emerging as a key factor in the development of healthy social-emotional function and underlies specific skills such as self-regulation, positive behavior, language development, social participation, toileting and more. This session will provide an overview of interoception as well as how it impacts these various areas of life. Multiple strategies for supporting your child’s interoception needs during existing daily routines will be shared.
