We often teach kids about their 5 senses, sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. There are 3 more senses that are talked about a lot more when a child has a sensory processing disorder.
Vestibular input is how you take in information through your inner ear about movement, gravity, and balance
Proprioception is how you take in information through your muscles, ligaments and joints about body position and body parts
Interoception is the sense that sends you messages about how your body feels internally. For example, hunger, thirst, heart rate, needing to go to the bathroom, etc.
I recently found a book about interoception, and I really love it, so I wanted to share it with you. It teaches kids about the feelings their body has inside. This book is very simple, with cute pictures, and great analogies for kids.
I generally like to see books before I buy it, and thought you might be similar, so I made this little video for you with the help of a really cute little girl 🙂 I definitely recommend buying this book. The link is below.
