The Coronavirus pandemic has been tough on everyone: children, parents, educational therapists, and schools are experiencing an unprecedented disruption to their schedules. This has particularly impacted children with special needs and their families.
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Gemiini Systems, a leader in online telehealth distance learning solutions, is reaching out to teachers, therapists, and school districts to make its web-based service available with no upfront costs for three months, or longer if the crisis continues.
The company, which is based in Spokane, Washington, offers a unique learning program specifically designed for people with autism, Down syndrome, dyslexia, speech delay, stroke, and others, that is effective, affordable, and provides unlimited therapy and learning anytime and anywhere. Gemiini System’s fully customized Discrete Video Modeling sessions and tools are evidence-based and clinically proven to effectively teach crucial speech, language, reading, social, and life skills.
Gemiini Systems has opened its certification program to professionals and has waived the $490 fee for certification. Gemiini is also offering schools and clinics use of Gemiini at no cost as long as they agree to submit the cost of the program to Medicaid. Gemiini can prove a valuable solution for special education administrators, who are struggling to navigate this crisis to continue to meet the needs of special needs students and families.
Laura Kasbar, a mother of seven, developed the Gemiini program to help her children with autism and dyslexia. Kasbar was so inspired by the success of her program that she shared her experiences in a book titled, “Embracing the Battle: Secrets of Victory from a Warrior Mom,” (https://www.amazon.com/Embracing-Battle-Secrets-Victory-Warrior-ebook/dp/B07C153791 ) to spread the word about Gemiini’s groundbreaking results.
Studies from professors from four universities have validated the effectiveness of the Gemiini program specifically. This includes a study published by Portland State University that found that Gemiini was over 300 percent more effective at achieving expressive speech than standard video modeling.
