Catapulting Neurodiverse Youths & Young Adults into Independence

What’s in a name? Catapallo. Latin for ``catapult``. Verb. hurl or launch (something) in a specified direction with or as if with a catapult.

If one thing was clear when we discussed naming our company, it was that we were striving to build something that would help launch individuals into independence, so “Catapallo” fit perfectly.

Our categories for our VR scenarios stem from CORE:

The Story of Kit: Our Fierce Dragon

Once upon a time, dragons were feared and misunderstood creatures. Villagers believed they were dangerous, fire-breathing monsters that would attack their homes and destroy their crops. But what the villagers didn’t understand was that dragons were actually kind and intelligent creatures, who simply wanted to be left alone to live their lives in peace.

At CatapalloVR, we believe that just like dragons, individuals who neurodivergent such as autistics, ADHD, and others, are often misunderstood by society. We believe that by taking a different approach and listening to their unique needs and perspectives, we can unlock the potential of these individuals and empower them to achieve their goals.

In our story, the villagers eventually came to see the dragons in a new light and realized that they were not the fearsome creatures they once thought they were. Similarly, we hope that by using technology and evidence-based therapies, we can help others see the potential of neurodivergent individuals and break down the barriers that have held them back.

So, let us take a different perspective and listen first. Let’s work together to create a world where everyone can thrive, just like the dragons in our story.
