From the very start at Floreo, we knew we wanted to create an accessible and affordable training tool for individuals with ASD. Our founders are the parents of child on the spectrum, and they know first-hand how difficult it can be to find high-quality, science-based tools to help coach their son at home.
That’s why we built Floreo to be used on equipment that many families already own. To use our app, you’ll need the following items:
- iPhone (7 or higher)
- An affordable VR headset
- iPad (2014 and newer)
- iOS 11.2 (or newer) on both your iPad and iPhone
- A wifi connection
Together, the iPhone and VR headset are used by the Learner while the adult supervising the Floreo experience follows along on the iPad. Since the iPhone and iPad need to be synced for the experience to work, you will also need a wifi connection in order to use Floreo.
While we know that these pieces of equipment can be out of reach for some families, we are actively working with therapist offices and local schools to make Floreo’s content as accessible as possible. If your local school or therapist is interested in learning more about how they can implement Floreo into their curriculum, ask them to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our plans are to also support Android and standalone VR headsets (e.g. Oculus Go) later in 2019. Stay tuned!
