Specifically, the online learning program is focused on helping those with autism, Down syndrome, dyslexia, speech delay, stroke, and others.

Gemiini Systems: The online learning platform

Considering that the coronavirus pandemic has also affected the educational landscape, Gemiini Systems has opened its doors to teachers, therapists, and school districts.

The program which has been put together by Kasbar and her team focuses on the following:

Support

To be able to help students who had skill losses due to the coronavirus pandemic, Gemiini systems provide support to its students.

Low-cost learning

To lend a helping hand to families of students with special needs, Kasbar's family offers a highly-effective but low-cost war for schools to meet the needs of the students.

Optimal progress

While students are still on distance learning, the Gemiini systems provide augmented support and increased therapy hours. This way, students may have the assurance that they will continue to progress once face-to-face classes resume.

Other Key Benefits of the Gemiini Systems

Research-based

Considering that Kasbar has spent years making sure that the quality of the online learning platform is good, the Washington mom made sure that the practices used for the platform are from reliable research.

Efficient

The platform offers a way that can easily identify the needs of the students, whether that is cognitive, social, emotional, motor skills, and life skills.

Customizable

Since each student might have their specific needs, the system offers individualized programs that are based on the assessments like behavioral analytic, IEP goals, and others.

User-friendly 

If there's anything that could make things easier for teachers, students, and parents, that is if a platform is user-friendly. In Gemiini systems, even if the programs are customizable, users can still easily get their way around it.

Affordable

Even if the learning and progress are optimal, Gemiini systems do not cost too much. 

Also, to continue with their advocacy of supporting families, students, and educational systems, the Washington mom and her company is offering the following:

  • Free 7-day trial for parents and families
  • Scholarships to anyone in need
  • Free 30-day trial with no credit card required for teachers, professionals, and therapists.

Testimonies on Gemiini Systems

Over the years the online learning platform has been tried and reviewed by professionals and families across the country. Here are some of the testimonies received by the company:

"It made me feel better about not being able to reach my students with the frequency and presence of direct one-on-one therapy because Gemiini videos offered exposure and modeling of the skills, and at least, they would still be learning. I have heard a number of parents tell me that they love Gemiini and their children have really taken to the videos. It is wonderful to hear." - Marina Polyakova, Speech-Language Pathologist

"Parents and students loved the videos, and both parents and I were ecstatic to hear students speak their first verbal words. It was one of the best feelings to see progress even through a distance learning platform and to feel connected to my students and parents even though we could not do speech therapy in a typical, face-to-face manner. I also find it amazing how easy it is to create videos that fit lessons or IEP goals for my students." - Dana DiAntonio, M.S., CCC-SLP, Connections Education Center of the Palm Beaches in Palm Beach, Florida
