We are thankful for our Floreo community throughout the year, but especially so during this season of gratitude. We appreciate all of your support: your kind words about new lessons (and your constructive criticism too!), every "like" on a social media post, and every time you mention Floreo to a family, educator, or clinician who can benefit from all that Floreo has to offer.
We look forward to bringing more exciting new lessons and features to our Coaches and Learners in the next year. Thank you for your continued enthusiasm around our work!

Floreo during the holidays
SUGGESTIONS FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF APPLIED DIGITAL THERAPY
Floreo's Director of Applied Digital Therapy, Rita Solórzano, is a Speech Language Pathologist with over 30 years of experience. She suggests some ways that using Floreo might be helpful during the holidays!
"A variety of holidays are coming up in November, December and January. That means celebratory activities and special events, but along with these celebrations come schedule disruptions both at home and at school. Consider using Floreo as a familiar, comforting space for your Learners to retreat to when things get hectic. The immersive nature of the Floreo experiences replaces the unusual sights and sounds of the real environment that a Learner might find dysregulating. Floreo can even travel with Learners on school field trips or family trips. Explore the various experiences in the Emotional Regulation skill category for calming spaces or use Learners’ favorite lessons to give them their own personal sanctuary."
