Interoception: The Eighth Sensory System - Book
This book presents the lesser known and understood eighth sensory system which controls the inner functionality of the body, e.g. pain, hunger, nausea, needing the toilet, sexual arousal, body temperature, thirst etc.
Just like other senses, it links to emotion and behaviour and self-regulation can be challenging for those with ASD.
Examples are provided, alongside research and clear information to help family members, individuals on the spectrum and professionals understand how to improve management and self-awareness via techniques, tools and assessments.
