It is always exciting to see our name in the press! We were thrilled to be highlighted as one of the top 8 VR applications in healthcare along with seven other impressive companies. We are excited to see what the rest of the year brings!

Floreo is a flexible platform that can help improve outcomes whether being used in-person or for telehealth. We would love to discuss how Floreo can fit into your routine.

Author, Floreo advisor and our Lead Self Advocate, Sam Farmer, announced  a series of six virtual presentations which "are geared towards providing ideas and insights as to how autistic and neurodiverse individuals may be able to carve out better lives for themselves." Hosted by the Northeast Arc in MA, we hope you are able to join for one or more event!

The Regrettable Necessity of Labeling Autism as a Disability (2/2 from 6:30-8:00 ET)
This workshop will delve into the upsides and downsides of describing autism as being a disability. There are valid reasons for this labeling, though at the same time, the label can do harm, unless strategies which will be discussed are used to keep it from doing harm. Register here.
Tips for Rising Above Bullying (2/16 from 6:30-8:00 ET)
This workshop will discuss why bullying is a "regrettable inevitability" as well as several strategies as to how one can survive it and not let it compromise self-esteem. Register here.
Regarding Masking and Sense of Self (3/9 from 6:30-8:00 ET)
This workshop will discuss what "masking" is, the circumstances under which it is likely to be used, why it can be detrimental to one's sense of self and how to keep it from undermining sense of self. Register here.
