In case you missed it...

New Floreo lesson!

New Lesson: Reunite the Animals

Who it is for: Learners aged 5+

What's new: Welcome to Harmony Forest! In this lesson, the Learner teams up with an owl friend, practicing the skill of collaboration to achieve the shared goal of uniting animal families. The experience emphasizes the joy and efficiency of teamwork.

Find Reunite the Animals in the new Social Interactions skill category once you have the latest version of Floreo! If you haven't yet had a chance to download the latest version of Floreo, it's a good time to do it! You can find it in the iOS app store by clicking this link. If you have Floreo rental equipment, make sure to turn it on, connect it to WiFi and let the update download before opening the app. 

If you haven't yet subscribed to Floreo, we would love to discuss subscription options with you. And if you or your staff would like to talk through the new content or any of the changes we've recently made, please reply to this email to set up time to speak to a member of our team!

Attention Medicaid Families


Did you know that in Wisconsin and New York families on Medicaid waivers initiated full reimbursed coverage of Floreo in the home?

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.

Funding ideas


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.
