Interoceptive differences

Strategies to support.

Strategies and approaches

  • Staff recognise the positive impact that recognising and planning for children’s sensory differences and needs have on children’s learning and emotional well-being.
  • Ensure adults regularly talk about internal feelings both physical and emotional.
  • Consider building mindful activities into daily routine.
  • Consider using body mapping to support the child or young person in developing their interoceptive awareness.
  • Consider activities that link physical sensations to labelling emotions.
