Understanding the breadth of ASD experiences and the environments in which relevant therapies must be provided and funded, Floreo developed its technologies to maximize flexibility in therapy administration – whether in person or via videoconference, by parent or by therapist, by speech language pathologist, BCBA or psychologist, delivered as home and community based service or as assistive technology.
