This book captivated me from the first page to the last. I rarely post reviews but felt this book will be helpful to other parents of kids with ASDs. Thank you Kelly Mahler for the excellent book on a great topic.

This book is a must read for ANY practitioner who works with children. All humans have “IA;” self-awareness is as unique as a fingerprint. A greater understanding of interoception has helped me to customize my approach with each and every student.

This book is a must read for parents, professionals, and is even a helpful read for individuals on the spectrum. Learning about Interoception has motivated me to continue to grow, and learn to feel my body better. It's given me a name and a reason for something I struggled with. As a young adult with Autism and self advocate, I give this book two thumbs up, 5 stars and a 10 out of 10!
A must read for sure!

Customer Review: Erin C Kavanagh -
Interoception is widely discussed and researched in other fields, however, up until this point little has been mentioned about interoception in the field of autism. This book provides a detailed connection between interoception and common experiences of individuals with autism. Chapters 1 & 2 provide an easy-to-follow explanation of interoception and offer many real-life examples to illustrate concepts clearly. These beginning chapters describe the influence that interoception has on many important skill areas such as: self-awareness, managing body functions (e.g. toileting, healthy eating habits, etc), understanding emotions, controlling emotions, empathy, perspective taking and social intuition. Chapter 3 covers assessment and provides three structured tools the reader can use when evaluating the interoceptive experience of individuals with autism. Lastly, this book concludes with an entire chapter dedicated to practical strategies for improving interoception. This book is by far a game changer and is a must read for anyone in the autism field.
