We are gearing up for an exciting last quarter of 2022. New content has just been released as part of our partnership with Wild Immersion (a company that has created the first virtual animal reserve!). We had such a great response to the first two lessons in this series (Koala and Iguana) and we hope to hear more feedback on these!
We would love to hear how we can support you as the school year begins or rapidly approaches! If you are interested in starting a Floreo subscription for your practice, school district, or family, please tap the button below to set up time to speak to a member of our team. Contact us.

New Lessons: Orangutan & Snowy Landscapes
Who it is for: Learners of all ages
What's new: As part of our continued partnership with Wild Immersion, we are excited to announce the release of two new lessons! You will find Orangutan in the Responding to Auditory Information skill category and Snowy Landscapes in Emotional Regulation. Your Learner can see the 360 degree videos featuring real orangutans 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 orangutans!
The Snowy Landscapes scene is a relaxing experience for the Learner to enjoy. Traveling slowly over treetops and mountaintops, the soothing vistas are a serene place to help practice deep breathing or other emotional regulation skills.
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 another 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 and Emotional Regulation skill categories once you have the latest version of Floreo!
