Allison Clark, a Special Education teacher in an Early Intervention program, used GemIIni for an entire school year with eight children with autism. Six of these children had low verbal skills and two were non-verbal (not even verbal imitation of sounds) despite three years in a school-based program. Large and unexpected gains were seen in attending skills, social interactions and language development in all of the students. All students using GemIIni met their annual IEP goals within the first two months of use. The two non-verbal children began verbal imitation within the first 30 days and both were speaking in sentences within six months of using GemIIni in the class.
