SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Apr 3, 2014) - Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced that it will exhibit at the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) 94th Annual Conference & Expo, which will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center April 3-6, 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland. Beamz will be sharing a booth at the conference with its reseller Technology for Education (Booth 366).
The Beamz interactive music system will be demonstrated for therapists attending the AOTA Annual Conference & Expo, which is the world's largest gathering of companies representing products, professional development, and employment opportunities for the occupational therapy community. Beamz is an innovative intervention tool to accelerate therapeutic outcomes with patients of all ages and varying needs. More specifically in the realm of music therapy, the Beamz Education and Healthcare offering has been used to work with occupational therapy patients of all ages.
"We are looking forward to exhibit at the AOTA Conference in Baltimore with our partner Technology for Education," said Charlie Mollo, CEO of Beamz Interactive. "Beamz is a great tool for occupational therapists to engage and motivate their patients and clients through music making. Simply by touching laser beams therapy patients will be able to create their own songs and receive the positive feedback so crucial to work toward their functional objectives via music."
During the conference, Ynez Peterson, an Assistive Technology Specialist and loyal Beamz customer, will host a presentation titled "Using Unique Devices to Encourage Switch Use" on Saturday, April 5th at 9:30 AM in the CC Ballroom I-II (Session # TD 306).

A hands-on presentation of three unique computer access devices, including the Beamz Education and Healthcare product, will be made available for those in attendance.
"Beamz has been an extraordinary product in occupational settings across all ages," said Beamz Director of Marketing, Mary Jo Barry. "The Beamz has proven to be an important device in homes, schools, rehabilitation centers and hospitals across the country. Together with our various partners and newly supported peripherals, we believe that the therapists at the AOTA Conference will be impressed with our broad interactive music catalogue and latest interventions made possible with the newest Beamz product."
