What is unique about Beamz is, while it’s developmentally beneficial for our kids with special needs, it’s also fun for the whole family!
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), an interactive music product and technology company, today announced their achievement of being awarded a uniform 4-Star Rating across four separate categories by The National Lekotek Center and AblePlay for their newest product offering, Beamz Classroom. Lekotek is a non-profit organization that uses independent evaluators to rigorously score products on their effective use with individuals who have sensory, physical, communicative and cognitive disabilities. The comprehensive review is available online at http://www.ableplay.org/products/beamz-interactive-inc/beamz.
“This award is a big deal for us,” said Al Ingallinera, Jr., Vice President of Product Management for Beamz Interactive. “We’ve known for some time now about the successes that have been occurring in classrooms, children’s hospitals, rehabilitation and therapeutic settings, but to be validated by and receive such high marks from an independent party, particularly an organization as well-respected as Lekotek, is quite an honor.”
The Beamz Classroom product combines the Beamz interactive music system with specialized content and activities that instantly make hundreds of different instruments, music clips and sound effects accessible – guitar, piano, drums, saxophone, bells, animals, crickets…and many more. The product is universally designed so it is accessible to children of all learning and physical abilities. Beamz’ versatility in its application context is unmatched—you can work on cognition, processing, sequencing, cause and effect, motor skills, memory, literacy, math concepts, collaboration, music therapy, music education and so much more. Or, you can simply leverage its “cool factor” to engage kids and reward productivity; touching laser beams and playing the light to which end makes music and sounds is so captivating that kids don’t feel like their actually skill-building.
Ahren A. Hoffman, Manager of Industry Relations & Partnerships from the National Lekotek Center conveyed, “Our evaluators and families reported that it was a pleasure working with Beamz.” She further commented saying, “What is unique about Beamz is, while it’s developmentally beneficial for our kids with special needs, it’s also fun for the whole family! Our evaluators reported over and over that parents and siblings got involved—that it felt like a way everyone could connect at the same level doing the same thing.”
The Beamz Classroom product is offered at a $249.95 MSRP and is available immediately online at http://www.thebeamz.com/classroom.
