Floreo spotlight on: Embrace Therapy Services

We are proud to say that the Floreo community has made a powerful impact this year. Despite the challenges and uncertainty of the pandemic, we celebrate our creative, innovative Coaches: over 300 of them, including educators, therapists, and family members in 19 countries around the world who delivered Floreo sessions to their Learners during 2021. Together, that group of Coaches used more than 16,000 Floreo lessons -- both in-person and via telehealth -- to make a difference in the outcomes and lives of over 800 Learners.

We are lucky to have you as part of our community. Thank you for spreading the word about our work, liking our posts on FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn, and sharing our newsletters with your friends and family.

We would love to talk about how you can join this elite group of cutting edge Coaches. If you are thinking of implementing Floreo in your practice or school district in 2022 please email us at info@floreotech.com to connect with a member of our team.

Just released: Scan the Store Shelves

For many, 2021 is certainly going to be remembered as a year for the record books, and that's certainly the case for us! Despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, we are proud that our talented (and fully remote!) team completed an app redesign, launched the Floreo portal to help our customers better track their Learners' Floreo activity, designed our recommendations tool to help find the most applicable lessons for each Learner, and released new skill categories to address skills related to safety, impulse control, focusing, emotional regulation, and interactions in the community and school settings.

We are grateful to you for your kind words of support, suggestions, and ideas. We are looking forward to 2022 with optimism and excitement as we continue to improve and enhance the Floreo experience and expand the breadth of our evidence-based content.

We always love to hear from you! Let us know how we can help bring Floreo to your practice or school district!

Sneak peek of our latest grocery store lesson!

Our many lesson settings provide your Learner with the opportunity to practice tons of different skills in engaging and diverse environments with many different characters. Your Learner can visit the park, cafeteria, classroom, grocery store, or a street scene from the comfort of your classroom, home, or clinic.

What location or scenario would you like to see us build next? We love to hear your suggestions: nearly all of the lessons in our current lesson library are based on customer ideas. Our team prioritizes customer feedback when deciding what we will build next! Email your suggestion to info@floreotech.com

Stay in shape over the holidays with Floreo's classroom lessons!

As we head into the holiday season and all the (hopefully fun!) chaos that entails, help keep your Learner classroom ready by playing Floreo! Our School Social lessons offer opportunities to practice interactions in the classroom and school cafeteria, so your Learner won't miss a beat when they head back to in-person school. Work on small talk, joining a conversation, introducing peers to one another, and even practice recognizing and responding to bullying in a safe, repeatable school environment. Our lessons can help set your Learner up for success in a school setting.

It is a great time to start talking about how Floreo can fit into your 2022 plans. Contact us to speak with a member of our team about the needs of your school district or therapy practice and how we can work with you to benefit your students, clients, and community!

Can you spot any of the hidden Floreo "Easter eggs"?

Our team is always working on ways to enhance and improve the Floreo experience. Our Art Director, Meredith Gammon, is known for adding "Easter eggs" to many Floreo scenes -- look closely and you'll see books and grocery store items named after Floreo team members, the Floreo logo hidden in different spots, and tons more!

You may be familiar with our Gestures series of lessons which help the Learner to practice gestural communication in a playground scene. Meredith recently added a fun new character to the Gestures series: an adorable Zebra. Can you find him with your Learner? Let us know where you spot him or if you've noticed any other Easter eggs in any other scenes!

And stay tuned, we have a new content release coming soon. We can't wait to announce it!

How do you choose lessons for your Learner?

If you haven't already checked it out, we have built a recommendations tool into Floreo. Each time a Coach creates a new Learner, they are asked to fill out a questionnaire about that Learner. The tool takes into consideration things like the Learner's age, verbal level, diagnoses, and more to suggest the lessons that we think are more applicable to your Learner. This can help make it as easy as possible to find the lessons you want to work on with your Learner.

Of course you can always use the new search function or scroll through the entire lesson library to find the lessons that match up with the goals you want to work on with your Learner! Or, look for the "more like this" section or the "sample IEP objectives" that are associated with each leaning card to help you decide.

What is your favorite way to choose lessons for your Learner?
