Floreo is led by CEO and co-founder Vijay Ravindran. Vijay is an Amazon veteran (1998-2005), who led product and engineering for Amazon’s consumer ordering technology including the launch of Amazon Prime. Vijay is also the father of a child on the autism spectrum, and the idea for Floreo started with his son’s first experience using virtual reality.
Floreo leverages the power of Virtual Reality to develop a method of teaching social and communication skills for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). They provide a library of lessons that are fun and engaging for the learner, while also providing a supervising adult the opportunity to monitor and track the learner’s progress. Floreo is currently being used by schools, therapy practices, and parents.
