Inside-Out: The Impact of Interoception, the Eighth Sense on Self-Regulation, and Social Connection Through the Lens of an Autistic Adult

The 2021 YAI Hudson Valley Autism Conference welcomes people with autism, parents, caregivers, and professionals to join us for a day of motivating and educational presentations.

Interoception is an important sensory system that helps us to feel internal body signals like a full bladder, growling stomach, tense muscles, or speeding heart. Many autistic children and adults experience interoception extremes ranging from body signals that are too small and go unnoticed or body signals that are too big and create overwhelm and distraction. Often this inner experience goes unnoticed or misunderstood by others. This conference will provide an overview of what the latest research tells us about interoception with a specific focus on how this sense influences self-regulation and social connection.

Chloe Rothschild and Kelly Mahler and have been friends for 7 years and speaking together at conferences internationally for 5 years. It didn’t take them long to discover that they share a lot of common passions including educating others about the provision of more kind and effective supports. In 2019 they co-authored a book, along with their friend Jarvas Alma, called My Interoception Workbook: A Guide for Adolescents, Teens & Adults.
