Are You Feeling Cold, Yuki?
A Story to Help Build Interoception and Internal Body Awareness for Children with Special Needs, including those with ASD, PDA, SPD, ADHD and DCD
Yuki the snow monkey lives in Japan with his family and friends. He sometimes finds it hard to realise when his body is giving him signals, like when he is hungry or cold. Grandfather helps Yuki to understand what his 'funny feelings' mean, and what his brain is trying to tell him.
This illustrated storybook will help children to build interoceptive awareness and gain an understanding of the body's activities. It also includes further information for parents and carers, as well as downloadable activities and strategies for building interoceptive abilities.
