Dissociation in How Core Autism Features Relate to Interoceptive Dimensions: Evidence from Cardiac Awareness in Children – A Summary for Non-Academics
In this research, published in 2019, researchers set out to discover how Autism affects interoception. The study found that different Autistic profiles correlate and affect different domains of interoceptive processing. It also found that repetitive, stimming behaviours are self-soothing and help to regulate the autonomic nervous system, which in turn generates interoceptive signals.
In this webinar, presented by Terra Vance with support from Kate Jones of NeuroClastic, Terra explores the topic of relating to Autistic people through Autistic identity, and how to forge authentic relationships.
Do you have an extreme reaction to certain sounds? If you’re misophonic, it is, in fact, a rational reaction to the fight-or-flight response that certain noises trigger in your brain.

In this illuminating blog, Autistic advocate and migrant, Helen Said, shares the challenges of her upbringing as an undiagnosed Autistic, migrant girl and how she is working to instigate change for CALD Autistic adults.
