Interoception Part 2: Clinical Reasoning, Case Studies and Adapting Interoception Supports for Young and/or Non-Speaking Clients

May 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$150.00 – $225.00

May 2 and 9, 2024
Online via Zoom
9:00 am to Noon MST Each Day

This workshop is intended for those who have already attended the SAOT workshop with Kelly Mahler in 2023, or those who have received other training in interoception with Kelly Mahler or another presenter. This is considered an intermediate level workshop.

Learning will focus on application of previously covered interoception science and strategies with a variety of clients. Part of this course will focus on the grading and adaptation of interoception strategies for use with specific populations including preschoolers and non-speaking clients. The second part of this course will focus on clinical reasoning using case studies submitted by registrants in advance. We will use these case studies to walk through common considerations and nuances of the interoception intervention process.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify at least two methods for adapting interoception strategies for the clients you serve;
2. Identify and adapt at least two interoception strategies for supporting clients that are very young and/or have complex communication needs;
3. Describe two clinical reasoning nuances or considerations that can be used to guide clients in their interoception journey.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion.

Attendance results in better learning outcomes. Provision of a recording is only at the discretion of SAOT.
NOTE – Recordings will not be provided except where a registrant has made a request in advance. Recordings will only be provided in the event of an extenuating circumstance – personal illness, personal injury or family emergency. When granted, a recording will be available for seven days.


Kelly Mahler: I am a fiery and passionate person that loves to crunch pinecones, cuddle with my 2 Corgi puppies and cook (sometimes poorly) with my family. I earned a Doctorate in Occupational Therapy from Misericordia University, Dallas, PA and have been an occupational therapist for 21 years, serving school-aged children and adults. I’m winner of multiple awards including the 2020 American Occupational Therapy Association Emerging and Innovative Practice Award & a Mom’s Choice Gold Medal. I am an international speaker and enjoy presenting on topics related to the twelve resources I’ve authored including 
The Interoception Curriculum.


Anna Vander Haeghe: Curious, passionate and focused, I have loved my journey of diving into interoception and how that relates to our experiences as humans. Weaving interoception-based practice into my work as an Occupational Therapist in Alberta, Canada has been life-changing for my students and co-workers. I have been an OT for 23 years working in a small rural community serving the entire live span. 10 years ago, I shifted to focus supporting children from preschool to high school.  I have mentored therapists around the world in ways to modify interoception work for our diverse students and look forward to sharing my experiences with you.
