Alphabeat is an online course that helps your clients stay engaged and reach their therapeutic goals by learning how to beatbox.
Alphabeat motivates your clients to attend to, imitate, and practice speech sounds using repetitive music patterns.
Alphabeat was created in partnership with a certified speech therapist. The method has been validated by peer-reviewed clinical research (Icht, 2019) and has been taught via in-person group classes since 2017.
Alphabeat has 10 video lessons covering everything your client needs to address the most common speech difficulties. Every lesson includes practice videos and an original "Recital" audio track, which encourage your client to practice their target sounds at different speeds.
To ensure that you're prepared to use Alphabeat with your clients, we've created an SLP Guide that shows you exactly how to integrate beatboxing into your practice. To equip you with even more ways to apply beatboxing with your clients, we provide access to our accredited Beatboxing for Speech Therapy ASHA CE courses.
