How you know if you’re hungry, thirsty, tired, etc. are key abilities to live a healthy life. These are also skills that those with autism spectrum disorder tend to lack. Kelly Mahler’s newest book gives professionals and parents a new way to teach these skills to individuals with ASD. She describes the clear link between interoception and many important skills such as self-awareness, self-regulation, problem solving, intuition, and many more.
