Jumpity McJumpsin All Levels Walkthrough

SLP Video Games is coming along nicely. It’s been a real joy to have such wonderful conversations with all of ya’ll who’ve signed up for an account. Thanks for all the awesome comments and such!

Jumpity McJumpsin, anyone?!

I went ahead and created a “walkthrough” video for the video game “Jumpity McJumpsin.” In this video, you’ll see me going through all of the levels plus I speak directly to how you might be able to incorporate some solid /R/ speech therapy during the video game experience. However, be warned that the video is a long one that clocks in at a whopping 18 minutes and 11 seconds. So, if you’re in the mood to hang out with me for that long, buckle up, friend, and let’s get our learn on! 😉

Get Rid of Red All Levels Walkthrough

As I’ve said in the video above, a bunch of my friends have reached out to me about SLP Video Games, and more specifically about how they are getting stumped on certain levels in certain video games. So, I had the idea of creating some “walkthrough” videos where I show you how you can beat each level of a video game over at SLP Video Games. And the first “walkthrough” video I made for you is one walking you through Get Rid of Red.

Do you like that video game?

If so, Get Rid of Red is one of many video games over at SLP Video Games. Be sure to check out SLP Video Games so you can experience some of the video game goodness. The world needs more video games, ya know? At least, that’s what I think. Haha!

SLP Video Games is Now Live

Here we are – it’s October 2020 and many of us practicing clinicians are involved in lots and lots of teletherapy. I don’t know about you but when COVID-19 took away the joy that is face-to-face therapy, it really threw me for a loop.


Of course I consider myself a person who “gets” technology but even I wasn’t truly prepared for the massive shift to almost exclusively all virtual delivery of speech-language therapy services.

Growth is a choice.

I took an honest look at what my colleagues and I were doing. How were we presenting our speech-language therapy activities to our caseload? The stuff that we were bringing to the “digital table,” was it presented in a manner that resonated with 21st century learners? I tried my hardest to think deep about this question and I tried, to the best of my ability, to look at all of this through the lens of today’s youth. Through thoughtful discussion and a real willingness to learn from my clients, I realized that I could be doing a better job. I needed to grow into the potential. I needed to explore video games.

Video games?!

One of the most common things that my elementary and middle school-aged students shared with me is how much they value and enjoy video games. Video games come in loads of different shapes and sizes, but long story short, I wanted to do something that allowed me to appropriately introduce video games into the work that I do together with my clients.

And so SLP Video Games was born.

From about April 2020 until just a few days ago, I kept my head down and I did the work. I learned all about Construct, which is an HTML5-based 2D game editor. I immersed myself in video games in ways that I never have done before. Loads of playtesting with loads of young people helped me to see that I was getting there. I was on my way to creating something that excited lots of learners. If used appropriately, video games can open up many doors for legitimate communication that connect to almost all speech-language therapy goals and objectives.

In closing . . .

As of a few moments ago, SLP Video Games is now launched and live. I shot the above video to show you what it’s all about. It would mean the world to me if you gave the video a watch. SLP Video Games might be for you. Might you give it a try?
