New Lessons: Populated Cafeteria lessons

Who it is for: Learners of all ages, especially Learners in middle and high school

What's new:  We have added extra characters and background sounds to the Cafeteria learning cards in the School Social skill category. Now, the Learner can practice different types of interactions in the cafeteria including finding a welcoming group to sit with, introducing peers to one another, joining a conversation that is already in progress, and more in an environment with auditory and visual distractions.

Consider pairing with: The original suite of Cafeteria lessons! Using both sets of Cafeteria lessons could be a great compare/contrast lesson for your Learner, or, work your way up to the populated versions of these learning cards after your Learner masters the Cafeteria lessons without distractions. All of our school-based content can help your Learner re-acclimate to a school setting.

Find these new lessons in the School Social 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, 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 set up time to speak to a member of our team!


Research study opportunity
