Your organization's Floreo admin will be able to use this new report to show the progress your Learner has made in the different lessons they have played.

Tools & Tips
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR FLOREO SUBSCRIPTION
One of our most frequently asked questions is whether the Learner will want to wear the headset in order to experience the immersive Floreo lessons. We recommend starting off slowly with small increments of time in and the headset, while the Coach makes sure the headset fits comfortably on the Learner's head. If needed, use IPD adjustment buttons on your headset to account for the Learner's head size and distance between their pupils.
As your Learner becomes accustomed to the headset, particularly if the Learner has trouble wearing it for more than a few seconds at a time, Floreo's Director of Therapy Content, Rita Solórzano suggests introducing music as part of the acclimation process: "The Coach could play a song that is enjoyable and familiar to the Learner and when the song is over, the Learner can take the headset off."
Check out this video for getting the headset ready for use with the Learner. Once you have the headset ready to go, watch this video for ideas for introducing the headset to even the most reluctant Learner. We would love to hear your ideas for introducing the headset to your Learner!
Other exciting developments in autism tech
Fellow start-up Neurona Health is opening up their waitlist for their much-needed technology and service they are rolling out around Polygenic Risk Scoring ("PRS") for Autism Risk and early childhood monitoring to supplement what most parents get through pediatricians. PRS is a relatively new concept but as the data set grows, it will become an essential tool in identifying risks at birth. This combines big data, risk management and telehealth to make sure early intervention happens in any potential cases of autism. Thanks to the 1 in 5 Newsletter from Divergent Investments for the heads up!
