If you haven't already checked it out, we have built a recommendations tool into Floreo. Each time a Coach creates a new Learner, they are asked to fill out a questionnaire about that Learner. The tool takes into consideration things like the Learner's age, verbal level, diagnoses, and more to suggest the lessons that we think are more applicable to your Learner. This can help make it as easy as possible to find the lessons you want to work on with your Learner.
Of course you can always use the new search function or scroll through the entire lesson library to find the lessons that match up with the goals you want to work on with your Learner! Or, look for the "more like this" section or the "sample IEP objectives" that are associated with each leaning card to help you decide.
What is your favorite way to choose lessons for your Learner?

VIRTUAL EDUCATORS CONFERENCE
Our partners at Celebrate the Children are teaming up with Profectum to host the 3rd Annual Virtual Educators Conference on November 4th & 5th. This conference will focus on overcoming new challenges created by the pandemic and virtual learning (increased anxieties, trauma, behavior, and developmental regression), and provide tools and strategies to educators, paraprofessionals, clinicians, and parents that can be immediately applied in various settings.
They are offering scholarships to educators and paraprofessionals to attend for free.
Contact them to join us as a sponsor to help make these scholarships possible!
Tools & Tips
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR FLOREO SUBSCRIPTION
Using Floreo, your Learner can practice a routine to understand what to expect when Trick-or-Treating, as well as social skills like remembering to say "Please" and "Thank you" when requesting candy.
Find the Trick-or-Treat lesson in the Community & Daily Living or the Infrequent Events skill categories. Or read more about it and all of the lessons in our library.
