We are looking forward to continuing to grow with our wonderful customers to improve positive outcomes to their Learners. If you are interested in joining us on that journey, we would love to hear from you! We would be happy to discuss how Floreo will fit seamlessly into your practice or classroom. Contact us.

New Lessons: Koala and Iguana

Who it is for: Learners of all ages

What's new: As part of a new partnership with Wild Immersion (a company that has created the first virtual animal reserve!), we are excited to announce the release of two new lessons in our Responding to Auditory Information executive functioning skill category. Your Learner can see 360 degree videos featuring real koalas and iguanas and listen to some fun facts about these animals. After your Learner listens to the lesson voiceover, we've provided some comprehension questions which the Coach can use to assess the Learner's ability to attend to the information presented. Your Learners may also just enjoy getting to be close to the animals! Be on the lookout for more content releases as part of this exciting partnership!

Consider pairing with: The Listen & Find lessons in Responding to Auditory Information for more practice listening to and retaining information. Or visit the Emotional Regulation skill category and take a relaxing break with Floreo's Guided Meditations (in the aquarium or sitting in the snowfall) and Guided Focus for Body Relaxation.

Find these new lessons in the Responding to Auditory Information skill category once you have the latest version of Floreo! If you haven't yet had a chance to download the latest version of Floreo, it's a good time to do it! You can find it in the iOS app store by clicking this link. If you have Floreo rental equipment, make sure to turn it on, connect it to WiFi and let the update download before opening the app.

Reminder that you will need to have iOS 15 installed on your iPad and iPhone in order to download the latest version of Floreo.

If you haven't yet subscribed to Floreo, we would love to discuss subscription options with you. And if you or your staff would like to talk through the new content or any of the changes we've recently made, please reply to this email to set up time to speak to a member of our team!
