Self regulation in the classroom
HOW FLOREO CAN HELP
Marsha Stepensky, MS.Ed, BCBA, is a Therapy Content Producer at Floreo and a former special education teacher. She knows firsthand the benefits of having a space in your classroom where students can take time if they are feeling overwhelmed or need a quiet spot to regulate their emotions. This article has some great tips for creating a self-regulation space in your classroom, including design ideas and items you may want to consider having available.
And we would also add Floreo as a great option for your space too! Our Emotional Regulation lessons, including our yoga lessons, guided meditations, and sensory spaces like Hang Out in the Aquarium or Snowfall can be used as a mobile sensory room and provide your students with an immersive experience to self-regulate.
Attention Medicaid Families
FLOREO SUBSCRIPTIONS MAY BE COVERED

If your family receives services in your state using a Medicaid waiver, you might be able to get a Floreo subscription (including equipment rental) fully covered by your state program. Reach out to us, and let’s work together to see how we can get Floreo into your home and start making a difference for your Learner.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU GAIN FUNDING FOR FLOREO?
We know that budgets can be tight and we want to help get Floreo into the hands of anyone who needs it! Please let us know if you need help writing up your DonorsChoose application or with information for a grant you have identified.
IDEA and Title I funds are also great sources to help you access a Floreo subscription.
