Interoception Assessment: Dilemmas and Practical Solutions

What you’ll learn:

  • What the most current research tells us about the best practices of interoception-based assessment
  • The strengths and limitations of the 3 Main Types of Interoception-Based Assessments:
    • Objective Measures
    • Self-Report Measures
    • Observation-Based/Caregiver Report
  • A review of the most commonly used interoception measures, including in-depth instruction regarding the application of 2 specific interoception assessment tools:
    • The Comprehensive Assessment of Interoceptive Awareness
    • Observation Scale of Interoception Experience
  • How to adapt these assessment tools for successful use with a variety of learners
  • Tips for using interoception-based interventions such as The Interoception Curriculum as an ongoing form of assessment
  • Future directions for the assessment of interoception
  • Information shared will be applicable to learners of a variety of ages, backgrounds, diagnoses & learning styles

 


Theory of OWN Mind: How to Help Neurodivergents Become the Manager of Their Own Emotions

What you’ll learn:

  • Why it is important to provide supports that nurture the development of Theory of Own Mind (in other words helping them understand their own feelings, strengths, etc.)
  • The issues with current methods of social programming that have an over-emphasis on considering the thoughts and feelings of other people and not enough emphasis on understanding own inner experience
  • A summary of research that that supports the developmental sequence of understanding your own feelings and thoughts first, before you are developmentally ready to understand the thoughts and feelings of others
  • Why it is vital to provide supports that help learners explore their own inner experiences in a way that is validating and strength-based
  • How interoception, the eighth sense, underlies the ability to identify your own emotions and thoughts
  • Many practical strategies for immediately nurturing Theory of Own Mind for a variety of neurodiverse learners
  • Information shared will be applicable to learners of a variety of ages, backgrounds, diagnoses & learning styles

 


Toileting, Interoception & Nutrition: An Evidence-Based Approach for Promoting Toileting Success and Independence

What you’ll learn:

  • The issues with current behavior-based potty-training approaches
  • What research tells up about the connection between successful toileting, interoception and healthy eating habits
  • How poor interoception and/or unhealthy eating habits underlie common toileting issues such as daytime accidents, nocturnal enuresis (nighttime bed wetting), stool withholding and constipation
  • How to begin to assess the underlying factors that can often contribute to toileting issues
  • An evidence-based approach for supporting the following toileting challenges in children and adults:
    • Challenge 1: Urinary Issues
    • Challenge 2: Stool Withholding, Constipation + Other Defecation Issues
    • Challenge 3: A Combination of Stool + Urine Issues
  • Many practical strategies to immediately enhance the methods you may be already using
  • Information applicable to learners of a variety of ages, backgrounds, diagnoses & learning styles
  • An overview of studies that Kerri and Kelly are doing to measure the toileting outcomes of an interoception + nutrition approach

 


Unsafe, Unheard and Misunderstood: Trauma from Being Atypical Living in a Typical World

What you’ll learn:

  • Why there is a need for better understanding regarding trauma in neurodiverse learners
  • How trauma may be experienced differently by neurodiverse learners
  • An expanded view of the various causes of trauma experienced by neurodiverse leaners including causes that are not typically considered within traditional trauma frameworks. These include trauma from:
    • Cause 1: Sensory Trauma- Overwhelm & Learning to Hide Sensory Needs
    • Cause 2: Social Trauma-Bullying, Isolation, Feeling Different & Masking
    • Cause 3: Compliance Trauma- Dangers of Normalization & Surface Behavioral Approaches
    • Cause 4: Neurological Trauma-Communication Differences, Dealing with Uncertainty, Striving to Keep Up
    • Cause 5: Medical Trauma-Being Misunderstood by Medical & Mental Health Providers
  • First-hand stories of trauma from growing up neurodivergent in a typical world.
  • Many practical strategies for preventing trauma and/or supporting the impact of trauma in neurodiverse learners
  • The impact that trauma has on interoception and the role it plays in the trauma recovery process
  • Information applicable to learners of a variety of ages, backgrounds, diagnoses & learning styles
  • Emerging research you can use to create buy-in for a stronger trauma-informed approach to supporting neurodiverse learners.

 


The 5 Keys to Behavior Regulation: How to Support ‘Challenging Behavior’ in a Kinder, More Effective Manner

What you’ll learn:

  • The issues with current trends in behavior assessment and supports
  • First-hand stories of the long-term detrimental impacts of certain behavioral approaches
  • Why the term ‘challenging behavior’ should be replaced with terms such as ‘stress response’ or ‘dysregulation’
  • How to begin to see past observable behaviors and better understand the underlying causes that often contribute to what we see on the outside
  • The 5 Keys to Behavior Regulation which is an evidence-based framework for supporting the regulation needs in children and adults in a kinder, more effective manner:
    • Key 1: Building Positive Relationships + Understanding the Whys
