MP3: Inner Body Awareness – How Interoception Impacts Behavior


This recording takes a deep dive into our hidden sense governed by the interoceptive system and looks at how it impacts a child's behavior.

Melissa and Sandi are joined by pediatric occupational therapist, Jill Loftus OTR/L, who explains how this “inner body awareness sense” works, what challenging behaviors might be demonstrated by a child who struggles with their proprioceptive system and how to best help them. We explore common potty training, sleep training and eating issues and how they may really be caused by a child who is struggling to feel their inner body rhythms.
