New Content

CHECK OUT OUR LATEST LESSONS
We released 16 new Learning Cards last week (including our brand new content related to Executive Functioning)! We showed you our new Guided Meditations and updated Join a Conversation Learning Cards last week and we will continue to unveil the newly released lessons in upcoming newsletters!
New Lessons: Listen & Find series

Who it is for: Learners of all ages

What's new:  Our new Responding to Auditory Information skill category helps the Coach guide the Learner through different scenarios where the Learner must listen and then perform a task or respond to a peer.

In the new Listen & Find Learning Cards, the Learner listens and then follows the safari guide's instructions to find characters in the scene by name or feature. But there is a twist -- the Learner needs to wait until the guide says, "Go," before starting to look. In this series, there are five new Learning Cards with built in randomization to give your Learner plenty of opportunities to try different combinations!

Consider pairing it with:  Our Spatial Concepts Learning Cards! In Spatial Concepts - Left & Right, help your Learner follow the directions to first notice left and right and then move up and down in a fun and visually engaging train station environment.

Help your Learner follow the directions to notice and identify the different locations the train visits and use prepositions to describe the scene in Spatial Concepts - Where is the Train?

Then, revisit the Listen & Find series to practice and reinforce descriptive language too!

New Content: Understanding Airport Security

Who it is for: Learners of all ages, especially middle and high school aged students

What's new: Also in our Responding to Auditory Information skill category, this lesson helps the Learner to attend to important auditory information needed to navigate through an airport security check.

Regular users of Floreo may recognize the environment of this Learning Card from our original Airport Security Check Learning Card. This Learning Card provides Coaching questions throughout the experience to ensure that the Learner has paid attention to the airport security information as it is presented.

Consider pairing it with: Street Crossing lessons in the new Community & Daily Living skill category can help your Learner practice another mode of travel.

All of our travel lessons provide a safe, repeatable spot for the Learner to practice vital skills related to navigating the community. In VR, the Learner can practice as many times as needed without the prying eyes or potential rude comments from strangers who may interrupt a real life experience.
