The new year brings with it a time for reflection upon goals, possibilities, and ideas. We have ambitious plans for this year and are looking forward to sharing more about them with you soon!
We have some exciting new content in the pipeline for this year, starting with the release of our first 3 lessons in a series to address employment-related skills. These lessons are the latest collaboration with Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) with another 3 slated for release soon.
We continue to put the finishing touches on our Floreo for Meta Quest offering: stay tuned for a release announcement soon!
It is a great time to consider how Floreo can benefit your Learners this year. Whether your staff can benefit from a refresher training or a deep dive into the Floreo content with a member of our team, or you are a new subscriber looking for options, please let us know how we can help you make a difference for your Learners.

Who it is for: Learners age 14+
What's new: Welcome to the Floreo movie theater! A brand new and engaging environment for your Learner to explore and practice essential employment-related skills.

Using strategies to increase independence and promote productive time management skills (including a to-do list), your Learner will practice organizational skills, "task batching," and improve their productivity.
Time Management: Multitasking: Learners will practice balancing more than one task while working at the movie theater concession stand.
Time Management: Interruptions and Distractions: Learners can practice combining their organization and multitasking skills with the added challenge of customer distractions.
Consider pairing with: the 6 Find Your Bus lessons to help your Learner work on even more independent living skills.Find these new lessons in the Community & Daily Living category once you have the latest version of Floreo!
