What is Interoception?
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. Research indicates that our ability to
clearly notice and interpret these internal body signals enables us to accurately identify and manage how we feel: Are we Anxious? Getting Frustrated? Hungry? Full? In pain? Needing the bathroom? Interoceptive differences are very common in a variety of individuals including those with
autism, trauma disorders, sensory processing disorder, ADHD, anxiety, depression and behavioral
challenges causing significant difficulty in identifying and managing the way they feel. Interoception is emerging as a key factor in the development of healthy social-emotional function and underlies specific skills such as self-regulation, positive behavior, language development, and social
participation.”
