Halloween is rapidly approaching and for those of you in the US, you may be in the midst of preparations. This great article has strategies that you can use all the way up to the big day. And it's the best time of year to practice Floreo's Trick or Treat lesson! Help your Learner practice a routine in VR so they understand what to expect when they head out on the 31st.
Floreo's inaugural digital roundtable
Our first ever digital roundtable was a success! We appreciate the insights and the time shared by all of the panelists: Amber Valentino (Trumpet Behavioral Health), Katya Sverdlov (JelikaLite), Solomon Parker (Caresource), and Vijay Ravindran (Floreo) and moderator Anastassia Gliadkovskaya (Fierce Healthcare).
In case you missed it...
Floreo's Founder/CEO, Vijay Ravindran, was a featured guest on the Special Education Inner Circle Podcast hosted by Master IEP Coach Catherine Whitcher. They discussed virtual reality in IEPs and how Floreo has made it easier to practice skills like street crossing in a safe environment.
We are excited to share this great IEP Guide by Catherine as a resource to help support parents and teachers who are interested in adding virtual reality to IEPs for their students.
