BEATBOXING FOR SPEECH THERAPY
Hip Hop is meaningful and cool, just like your relationship with your clients.
Our Beatboxing for Speech Therapy courses are based on clinical research and developed in partnership with Speech-Language Pathologists to ensure relevance and efficacy.
We prepare SLPs and allied professionals to use Hip Hop to address common speech and language disorders, engagement, and rapport building.
We offer two courses for the chance to earn ASHA CEUs:
- Exploring Beatboxing Interventions Through Case Studies is a virtual self-study course which individuals can take at any time.
- Beatboxing as Speech and Language Intervention is a virtual, interactive course that’s perfect for small groups.

I believe in the transformative nature of beatboxing and the ways in which beatboxing can positively influence communication and actually improve the accuracy of speech sound production. The energy and tenacity of the leaders of BEAT and those involved with BEAT are inspiring. They aim to empower youth - and they do. [...] Speech and beatboxing are social practices and have inherent qualities that encourage turn-taking, listening, and articulating. Perhaps most importantly, I also see the vibrant connection between beatboxing, as BEAT Rockers has implemented, and the experiences, activities, and participation of youth in daily interactions.
This training was so spot-on and interesting that I was messaging other speech therapists about it before the training was over!
This program was beneficial to me because first, it put me in my client's shoes. Being asked to leave my comfort zone and create sounds I didn't think I could produce changed my perception of client rapport building. I will use this with many clients just for that purpose alone. Additionally I see the benefits of teaching sound production without attachment to past failures in producing speech. Beat Boxing can facilitate errorless learning.
