Can I just report what we have experienced so far with this program. My daughter has Down syndrome, autism, and is non-verbal. Her receptive language is fine but her expressive language is non-existent. She used to sign and speak several words when she was little but lost all expressive language at the age of 3- 4. She is 9 now.
I had little faith in the Gemiini program as we have tried everything to help her to speak or even sign. We decided to give the program 6 months. We started Jan 14, 2015 with quick start 3 times/day with meals. Some days we only got to two sessions, and the weekends were hit-and-miss. Then February sickness hit and we were unable to do any kind of therapy or schooling for the entire month.
We started up the Gemiini program again in March 2015 (three days ago) so that makes a total of two and a half weeks we have been applying the program. Today my darling daughter STARTED EXPRESSING WORDS AND SOUNDS. This is what she said: apple, ball, fish, go, green means go, guh (sound of letter g), D (name of letter), duh (sound of letter), and she is expressing sound effects along with the apps she plays with on the iPad. Granted, the words are garbled and hard to understand, but the important thing is she is expressing language. It's a giant start for all of us. I want to cry happy tears. We now see a brighter future for all of us! Thank you!
