As many schools around the country incorporate social-emotional learning into their curriculum, consider how Floreo would be the perfect complement for your Learners. From our peer interactions to help Learners understand the intention behind small talk to finding ways to communicate with police officers: there is something for everyone in the Floreo lesson library. Our clinically-designed experiences give your Learners the opportunity to practice building strong relationships and making empathetic decisions when interacting with others, all from the comfort and safety of the classroom, clinic, or home setting.
And it is the perfect time to think about implementing Floreo! Educators, including school service providers: take note of the Floreo Immersive Learning Program opportunity.
Exciting opportunity for educators
FLOREO IMMERSIVE LEARNING PROGRAM
We are thrilled to announce the Floreo Immersive Learning Program, a unique opportunity for schools to bring Floreo to neurodiverse students.
In collaboration with Meta, the program is for neurodiverse students ages 13 and above and includes free Meta Quest 2 headsets for classrooms. In addition, we are providing a Floreo Classroom Bundle for the low setup cost of only $250 through the 2023/2024 school year for participating schools.
Please share with your favorite educators and schools. We are so excited to help get more technology into the hands of very deserving schools. There is a short application process and schools interested in learning more can click here.
THE FLOREO COMMUNITY CONTINUES TO GROW
A warm welcome to our newest partners at Berkshire Middle/High School (OH) who just signed up to begin their Floreo program. We look forward to helping you serve the needs of your students and communities!
Are you ready to join the Floreo family? We would love to discuss implementation in your school, district, or practice!
In case you missed it...
NEW OPTION FOR CLINICS
Last summer, Floreo sponsored the application for a new CPT III Code that went into effect January 1, 2023. Code 0770T is an add-on code that represents the practice expense for the software used for the VR technology and may be reported for each session for which VR technology is used. VR technology is incorporated into the base therapy session and is used to enhance the training or teaching of a skill upon which the therapy is focused.
If you are interested in incorporating this CPT III code into your practice's billing procedure, please let us know. We have some tips for outreach that may be helpful for you.
