Early years: Interoceptive Differences

  • Staff recognise the positive impact that recognising and planning for children’s sensory differences and needs have on children’s learning and emotional well-being.
  • There are prompts for the interoceptive sense – adults in everyday practice talk about internal feelings both physical and emotional.
  • Consider building mindful activities into daily routine


Sensory Resource


A sensory checklist for the classroom and individuals can be found on the Autism and Social Communication Advisory Teams WIKI, under the resources for schools section (scroll along to sensory processing).
