Children in school often show dysregulation that manifests in the form of meltdowns, decreased ability to focus, and incongruency in intelligence versus actual performance. This session discusses regulation and the importance of interoception as a gateway to theory of mind. Children who do not possess interoceptive awareness cannot reflect on other’s emotions. Therefore, theory of mind should be tied to interoceptive training. Linking both to executive function will improve therapeutic outcomes and success in the classroom.
