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.

Using Floreo in your clinic, school, or home
INFO FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF APPLIED DIGITAL THERAPY
Floreo's Director of Applied Digital Therapy, Rita Solórzano MA, CCC-SLP, is a Speech Language Pathologist with over 30 years of experience.
The Evolution of Pointing: Some of the earliest lessons that we made at Floreo back in 2016 were developed to support Learners who had challenges around joint attention-related skills. You may have noticed in the lesson Emma is Pointing that character Emma looks at an animal and holds her gaze, as well as her gestural point, on that animal for 20 seconds.
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. This is a great resource to find available grants.
