Interoception impacts social skills, reading comprehension, and regulation. This presentation will introduce the concept of interoception and how to support autistic learners in developing interoceptive awareness. We will look at a small group implementation of Kelly Mahler’s Interoception Curriculum supported by sensory experiences, expressive arts, and social emotional literacy. We will explore ideas of how to expand these strategies into larger classroom settings as well as at home.
