Recently I've been hearing a lot about a program called https://www.gemiini.org/ Gemiini. It is a program to help non verbal children speak. We decided to take the plunge and buy it for Sam, as well as a tablet. It's a bit hard to use for us because of our horrible internet service but I've just been sitting in the church with him, listening to the video over and over again. It is a totally web based program. I did get it to work some in our home last night but it's been a challenge. Today I have Sam with me at the library in a study room.
Sam is quite engrossed in it to say the very least! Basically it's like a Baby Einstein video with all the music taken out and all the pretty pictures LOL. It shows a lot of close up on people saying a word over and over and over and over and over again. Pretty much purgatory for the parent! Yesterday I had such a headache I thought I was going to puke! I'm so thankful that Sam is so engrossed in it. The sessions are lengthy-for some reason I think they are 40 minutes each. AND the child is to view it 40 times....yep...40times before you can move on to the next video. We are on view #5.....we have a looooong way to go.
Here is Sam last night
