Interoception - An internal sensory system telling us how we feel
Do you know people who find it difficult to be aware of when they are hungry, need the toilet or when they’re tired?
Tuesday 6th November we are arranging a conference where research and practice will come together to help answer some of your questions which may be popping up relating to our internal sense - Interoception.
This conference is bringing together researchers and practitioners to help parents and professionals understand more about how Interoception processing difficulties may affect people with additional needs.
