What is Gemiini?
Gemiini is a web-based program that utilizes an approach called Discrete Video Modeling.
Discrete Video Modeling is a clinically proven way to increase language, reading, and social
skills. It breaks down information into understandable and digestible bites, making it an ideal
solution for people with autism, Down syndrome, and other special needs.
To demonstrate how Gemiini’s discrete video modeling is able to teach more effectively than
standard video modeling, watch these two videos in Chinese.

After watching each video ask yourself:
- Did you feel your own mouth wanting to move with the speakers?
- Can you pronounce the words in Chinese?
- Do you understand what he is talking about?
Who can Gemiini help?
Gemiini is proven to be effective in helping people of all ages, from all over the world, learn to speak. All children, whether they have autism, Down syndrome, apraxia, or are normally
developing,can benefit from the Gemiini program. It has also been effective with autistic,
non-verbal teens and adults. Parents who start therapy with their children early, and remain
committed throughout early childhood, often see their kids reach age-appropriate levels of
speech. It is this unique and holistic approach to learning that has changed the lives of thousands of families across the globe. Check out what some of them had to say.
How is Gemiini used?
Since Gemiini is web-based, it can be used on a tablet device anywhere there is an Internet
connection. Speech therapists often used the program in conjunction with traditional
therapy. Parents who suspect signs of autism use Gemiini at home to get a head start on
therapy. The program can be used in the car, at the dinner table, or in a clinical setting.
How does Gemiini help with autism?
For people on the autism spectrum, the brain lacks some or all ability to prioritize and pare
down information. Think of the autistic brain as a confusing land with tons of answers and
no or little way to grab the right one.
Having three children on the spectrum, Gemiini founder Laura Kasbar is all too familiar with
the challenges that can face children with autism. She created Gemiini as a way to augment
her children’s therapy and further give them a chance to excel in life.
How many times have you thought to yourself, “I know she knows the answer, but I don’t
know how to get it out” or, “I know he has a lot to say, but he doesn’t know how to say it.”
Gemiini’s discrete video modeling focuses and trains the brain to know what is important
and what isn’t, unlocking the door to learning.
How much does Gemiini cost?
The regular monthly subscription is $98 per month, and users may cancel anytime.
However, Gemiini pricing is a moral and ethical decision, not a business decision. Gemiini
believes the children always come first. Because of this belief, no child’s family will be
turned away for an inability to pay. Monthly pricing can drop from $98/month to $59/month,
$29/month or even $10 per month depending on the financial situation of the particular
family. Scholarships are available on when you sign up.
Is there research supporting Gemiini?

trials. Details, and specific studies, can be accessed here.
