We started Gemiini when my son was probably about 2 1/2. We were doing the regular videos for over a year and then stopped using it. I was still part of the discussion group so when the live video about apraxia was posted I saw it and we decided to try using the videos again but this time using the apraxia protocol. I'm so glad we did! We've only been doing it about a week but my son has already said or partially said all five of the words in the video! This morning he even signed "more" then said "peas cereal" (Please cereal)! If you are thinking about giving up please try the apraxia protocol!

We began Gemini about 21 months ago. Two children, both ASD. I found Gemiini but hadn't heard of previously. Mentioned it to our ABA analyst who had seen early research and was very optimistic. SL Therapist hadn't heard of and was skeptical! Signed up as thought it was worth a try. 

At the time our first child, Sadhbh, a girl, was four years, she had a two year delay in language. She was moderate on ASD scale.  At time of signing up with Gemiini had gotten to 10th centile for overall language score. Receptive language was less than 5th centile. improvements were slow and hard earned.  Second child, Seanan, was just two, he had 15 sounds (mmm for milk, a few animal signs ....) and almost no receptive language. Couldn't  follow a single direction. Was very frustrated. No imitation skills at all. Very poor play skills too. 

Seanan, within a week, was pointing, imitating and saying all the animal sounds. By six months he was saying sentences. Now over a year later he is chatty, speaking in sentences. He's had first language test and he's ahead for age now! With the speech delay sorted he has become a social little boy and is just settling into his new mainstream preschool with ease. 

Sadhbh had small improvements...pronunciation, eye contact, attempts at conversation, watching people's mouth, speaking more to person than to space..... After another two months we noticed more improvements. She started to use some of the scripted conversations. After six months she had big gains. Last years language score she reached 21st centile after six months of Gemiini with receptive language score at 10th centile. She's just had assessment last month and she's 47th centile so very much improved again. 

Additional achievements are a big increase in social behaviour. She is playing with children. Yes she is still behind socially but she is definitely catching up. 

I feel GEMIINI has allowed our girl to flourish in mainstream school. At start of primary she barely had enough words to enter the class. A year and half later she is top in her class for reading. Her receptive language is hugely improved. She's following directions. Still expressive language is challenging but much improved. 

I cannot recommend Gemiini highly enough. It has made such a difference to our children and their lives. It is so easy to use and relative to other therapies it is inexpensive. Due to the gains we have seen with Gemiini I now believe both my children will be capable of a successful independent life and that they themselves will determine their own outcome. 

I think Laura Kasbar and her family have given the world an incredible gift. Such foresight to see what a difference she could make to so many people the world over!! I feel the management team at Gemiini make a huge contribution to the success of Gemiini. They are proactive in putting more and more video clips together that allow our children to develop language skills in areas that are relevant to them.  Thank you very very much!!"

Here's my 3 1/2 year old son enjoying one of our sessions 'Counting 1-30.' He has been doing Gemiini for 6 weeks so far and has started being a lot more engaging and has attempted several words. Some have been really clear!

So proud of him. Little steps in a positive direction.

Dave R. (Parent)

My son started GemIIni almost 2 months ago and he is starting to say a few words! The other day he said a complete sentence, "I did it!" I was so happy I almost cried! This has given me so much hope, so glad we decided to give it a try.

Melissa A. (Parent)

I AM ECSTATIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have had GEMIINI for one month today but only really used it consistently for the last 2 weeks and Jacob just decided to show me that he can say the first 3 words in lesson 2.0!!!!!!!!!!

Crab

You have got to be kidding me!!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
So many happy tears!!!!!

Jenn V. (Parent)

My daughter is 21 with DS. She had reached a point where she would just look at me every time someone spoke to her. She knew they couldn't understand her. One month with Gemiini and we are seeing eye contact and voluntary greetings! She used to just parrot back the last thing we said when given a choice. Now she at least tries to say what she really wants. Gemiini is one of the best things we ever did for her I highly recommend it!!!

Betty B. (Parent)

We've almost completed our first day with the program. And I've been wiping away happy tears for most of it. My 2 year old son who is mostly non verbal (his only functional word is bye bye), sensory processing disorder and we are waiting for our autism evaluation. Did 3 (count em 3!!!!!) Imitations today. I can't belive it! What a wonderful day!

Emily C. (Parent)

I started Gemiini about 3 months ago. It was the first thing I tried when my then 17-month-old was labeled "at risk" for autism. We have been watching the animal sounds videos repeatedly and I've even made some of my own. Just this past week, my son started talking. He only says a few words (car, mama, dada, pawpaw, kitty, uh-oh, juice) but he knows so many animal sounds. I had no clue he was absorbing all of those. He knows elephant, sheep, monkey, snake, dog, cat, tiger, and lion. It's really incredible. His speech therapist is amazed! He is picking up more animal sounds every day. I have to admit, I was skeptical but not anymore.

Thank you Gemiini!

I’m so excited! We have been using Gemiini for under a week and I have seen amazing improvement in my 3-year-old! I know that sounds crazy, but I’m watching this unfold before my eyes! Here’s an example: He has struggled with the word “fix” for so long. He usually says, “seek.” He could make all the individual sounds, he just couldn’t put them together. Out of the blue today, he clear as day said, “fix.”His articulation has significantly improved in just six days. I tell everyone who will listen about Gemiini!

​Nancy B. (Parent)

In the past two days, my grandson Logan, for the first time, pet a dog. It was an actual stroke of the fur from head to hinney, twice. He also held and hugged, for a couple of minutes, a stuffed animal. He is 2 years 9 months old. This is huge. He has been using Gemiini since Nov. '15. He continues to be without words but his social interaction and eye contact has improved immensely.

​Connie P (Grandparent)

At the mall, after watching the Gemiini cowboy video, my daughter just climbed onto the moving toys then asked for 'coins' to put in and she stayed on it for 3 rounds!! She used to hate things like that before.

Georgie V. (Parent)

Max was watching his Gemiini video about hamburgers so I asked him if he would like a cheeseburger. He said yes! So I bought him one and he pretended to eat it and studied it and opened it and nibbled on a tiny edge of the bread. This is HUGE for him! I'm guessing a couple more attempts and he will actually bite one!

​Sharon E. (Parent)

I'm truly grateful for this page and Gemiini. A friend suggested trying Gemiini almost a year ago but I was concerned about finances. I wish I hadn't waited.

Our daughter has made big improvements communicating and is trying harder to speak in longer, complete sentences.
I smiled to myself the other day when another child attempted to take a toy from her and she responded with, "Hey, don't take that. That is mine, it is not yours."
In the past she'd just yell, "No!"

​Janice G. (Parent)

My 3 year old baby girl has been doing Gemiini for 10 weeks now. She has severe global developmental delay and though she's always made many sounds she has never said actual words. We've been doing a lot of imitation videos and this Saturday she imitated "bear" and "up" :) when we were playing and talking about her favourite cartoons - Masha and the Bear. So happy I could dance on the table! Thank you Gemiini, I knew we were on the right path when signing up, and this just gives us more incentive to carry on.

I've just received this e-mail from my sons SLT at school:

'Hi Hillary,
I didn't get to see Matthew last week but I saw him in class and then in my room with Miss Perry today. I am AMAZED!!!! I had a tear in my eye. I can't believe the progress in what seems like a few weeks.
Blending sounds and attempting lots of talking

Hillary D. (Parent)

Gemiini isn't always switch-flipping magic. Just to encourage those of you who wonder why your child doesn't imitate the animals like the other success stories- we had NOTHING 4 months ago and now we are up to 15 different words a day being said up to 70 times. And this is just during therapy. He has gained 40 words/word approximations in the past 4 months.

​Jamie Stamborski (Parent)

Crying tears of joy after my mostly non verbal (just babble) 3-year-old daughter identified every shape as I drew them for her. She has been loving the shape and color videos. Such an amazing breakthrough for her. So glad we found this program.

​Kay S. (Parent)

"For the first time ever my son King said, "I love you too" to me. I'm literally in tears! Sweetest words I have ever heard. I tucked him into bed, gave him a kiss, and said, "Goodnight I love you," and he said, "I love you too." I was so shocked I said, "Did you just say, "I love you too? Say it again!" Then he said it again, "I love you too."

My heart feels like it's going to explode. I don't know if it's Gemiini-related since we haven't watched any videos saying "I love you" but I know in the two weeks he has been doing Gemiini he is much more verbal and ready to try and repeat new words. I literally have been trying to get those sweet words, "I love you," out of him for over a year!

​Sunny K. (Parent)

"Tonight I read to my son a book about a boy going fishing on his motorboat through islands off the coast of Norway, then I asked him if he would like to go fishing someday. He said yes, then I asked him what he would like to "fish."

He immediately corrected me, "catch," then he said, "Blue marlin!"

His conversation skills and vocabulary have increased dramatically in two months since we began Gemiini. This picture is first time that he got to come with us to volunteer at the food bank!"

Gabriela A. (Parent)

"This program is amazing. My son hasn't said a word yet but everyone had noticed he tries to communicate more and is very cooperative in therapies. He is making new sounds and for the first time I believe he is going to talk. Thank you Gemiini!"

​Janelle G. (Parent)

"Amelia just walked in and said, 'Kiss me, Mom.'
19 years, 11 months, 13 days of never hearing these words. 'Kiss me, mom.'
Tears have never been so sweet. How could I ever express my gratitude for this? I have never been at such a loss for words in my life. I am so in love with my sweet girl, and so in love with Gemiini. If those were the only 3 words she ever learned, I am satisfied.
Kiss me, mom."

​Dayna W. (Parent)

"I love unexpected gains. The library used to be a place we would get kicked out of or we would have to leave. Josh would rarely follow instructions. He was loud and running around. He once set off the fire alarm years ago. Sensory therapy helped so he could talk to the librarians, not make disturbing noises and no crying or having to lie down to study the ceiling. But now that Josh is used to being focused on the computer, he can do learning games on computer at the library for a couple hours after sitting quietly to read books with me. He does not get upset at all when its time to go home. He also asks to do his sequencing and reading on Gemiini at the library. This symphony of gains means I can take him with his four siblings to the library for the afternoon with no issues....well my 4 year old doesnt like to go home so I tell him to look at big brother with Autism and how he handles it."

​Elizabeth V. (Parent)

​Nancy B. (Parent)

We started Gemiini a week ago today. We are amazed at our son's progress! On the first day, he said 'bear' for the first time ever, then not much for the rest of the week... although was very interested in the videos. Today, out of the blue, started repeating all the words and actions from video 2.0. My husband and I nearly fell over! This is from a four-year-old with Autism, who only knows a few words and has a hard time speaking. Feeling super hopeful and motivated. Thank you Gemiini!!!

​Barbara B. (Parent)

"My son is 27 and continues to make gains using the program on average of one hour per day. He loves it and is highly motivated in doing the program, he reminds me every weekend that he will start again on Monday. He does the program Monday thru Friday taking the weekends off. As a mom of an older child with special needs that has tried many therapies over the years- I would say this and occupational therapy have done more for my son than anything. Just remember not to expect instant results, for most it takes time and consistency. Don't be discouraged, I believe you will see some benefits for your child in due time, every child is unique and the timetable will not be the same for everyone."

​Carol M. (Parent)

"First Gemiini gains to report! My guy is a few months shy of six years old. He has autism and was also recently diagnosed with MERLD. He is verbal, but his average age between receptive and expressive language is 3 years, 3 months, so we have a long way to go.

I've been making custom videos for him. This week we've been doing comparisons and action verbs. Today after his dad told him he was going upstairs, he said "I understood." Later, he gathered all his pretzels and told me, "I have all of them." Both of these are concepts covered in his video this week.

Lastly, he asked his first "why" question today.

I've waited so long to hear him ask "why" about something. I can't wait to keep going and see what he'll say next."

​Sarah P. (Parent)

"Something has clicked in him watching these videos. He's responding to his name more consistently, he's been saying or trying to say words. He recognizes animals he's learned, and he even has responded to me. We know that these are no less than amazing, especially when you feel hopeless. What do you have to lose?"

​Allie C. (Parent)

"I would like to say that this program is the best thing that has happened to my family. My son who was non verbal in any way is now saying up to 25+ words. Today we were watching dog videos on youtube and he said 'dog' and proceeded to make sounds like a dog. I teared up with joy."

Clorina H. (Parent)

"I just started Gemiini for my non-verbal 2 1/2 year-old son, who was diagnosed with ASD four months ago. He has been in speech therapy for almost a year & has barely tried mimicking sounds or words ... Until now. My jaw was on the floor when he said "Cat" perfectly on day 2 & "Dog" on day 3. I cried happy tears, I am so over the moon happy hearing his little voice!!!"

Jen R. (Parent)

"We heard "daddy" and "I love you" for the first time yesterday...brought tears of joy."
