An update on Wisconsin autism waiver services & new lessons released!

By Heather | May 5, 2021


We are excited to announce that in addition to our status as approved Medicaid providers under the autism waiver in both Maryland and DC, we have expanded our Medicaid presence to Wisconsin! We are approved under Wisconsin's Children's Long Term Support Waiver program as a provider of both assistive technology and supportive services. We will be listed in the provider directory available to counties, families, stakeholders and the general public.

We are looking to expand to more states, but in the meantime, if your family receives Medicaid services under the autism waiver in Wisconsin, Maryland or DC, we'd love to talk to you about the services we offer.

Author, Floreo advisor and Lead Self Advocate, Sam Farmer, penned a recent article in The Hill highlighting the ways virtual reality (especially Floreo!) has helped to broaden therapeutic possibilities for autistic individuals. Read the article here.

New Content

Two new lessons! Describing Where: Spatial Concepts - Up & Down and Spatial Concepts - In & Out

Who it is for: Learners of all ages

What's new: In Spatial Concepts - Up & Down, help your Learner follow the directions to first notice up and down and then move up and down in a fun and visually engaging aquarium environment. In Spatial Concepts - In & Out, help your Learner follow the directions to first notice in and out and then move in and out while interacting with peer avatars on a playground.

Consider pairing with: Watch it go in Eye Contact Safari, the Find the fish sensory space or Airport Security Check in Air Travel Adventures and have your Learner describe "where" in those scenes. 
If you have Floreo rental equipment, please be sure to turn on your devices, make sure they are charged and connected to WiFi so we can push the update to you. If you have your own devices, make sure to visit the iOS app store with both of your devices to ensure you have the latest update!

Research study opportunity
Our partners at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are recruiting participants for a compensated survey about autism and police. Please consider participating or sharing with others who might be interested!
