Meet Kim of Do-N-Slide
Tell us a little about you . . . I am a mother, a behavior analyst and a speech language pathologist. I am also the co-founder of Our Kids to Yours LLC. My work with special needs children has driven me to create a wonderful new product for all children called the Do-N-Slide. What is your business and where can we find it? My company creates educational kids products. Our first product is called a Do-N-Slide. A Do-N-Slide is a picture 'to-do' list for children that can be used to fulfill a number of desirable goals. Do-N-Slide is made of board book material and it has 6 slider channels which are used to hold picture cards. The first picture pack to be released with the Do-N-Slide board is the 'Help Around the House' pack. A Do-N-Slide comes with 20 picture cards, 6 blank cards (for personalization) and 7 day of the week cards. It also comes with a sturdy plastic pocket to store the picture cards when they are not in use. The pictures are inserted in the left side of the board into the 'To Do' column and as tasks are completed they are slid (either by child or parent) to the right side of the board--the 'All Done' column. It's such a simple concept, but I can’t tell you how using it truly changes a child’s behavior for the better. It can also increase language development, improve ability to organize and sequence, clarify your spoken word, increase independence and can reduce resistance to routines and or activities. http://www.do-n-slide.com/ Is it mom-owned, invented, created? It is all three! Both owners, inventors and creators are moms of young children. A little about your entrepreneurial journey so far? Its been a long, fun, rocky road. Just 2 years ago I was sitting in my room making picture to-do lists by hand wondering why I could not find anything like it in a local store . Now I can tell all the local parents to buy it at our Local Learning Express or at our local teacher supply store or at the do-n-slide website. Where else can people find you? http://www.do-n-slide.com/ kim@ourkidstoyours.com http://www.ourkidstoyours.com/ http://mommymillionaire.ning.com/profile/Kim Anything else you’d like to share? Because I felt the need to give back to the community that birthed the idea of a Picture-To Do List, we at Our Kids to Yours LLC have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Do-N-Slide unit to Autism research.

I would use this to make sure my son took a nap in the afternoon.

Amy said...

I'd use the potty training going to the bathroom card - the rest of this particular pack -wiping flushing etc can come afterwords!

organizing and sequencing his toy bins

mamamymy said...

Oh this is a great idea...i like the "help cook" & "water plants" picture cards!!!

Jenn S. said...

I would use the put toys away and put clothes in hamper the most.

I always have to fight with my kids to put toys away. So this would come in handy.

We'd use the 'eat snack' task from the toddlers day chart. Great giveaway, thanks!

Jason said...

I would like the Potty Training item even though it is not out yet. The pictures would really help out with training.

Thanks for the great review. Jas

judybrittle said...

The one task that I would for sure like is put toys away followed by clothes away. This would be really great to have one of these. Thank you!

Natasha said...

My guy is a bit little for this right now, but it's never too early to be prepared! The Toddler's day would be perfect right now, and potty training too - can't wait for those to come out!
I could use that chart for me now, lol. Walk the dog, get mail, water plants...I need all that! I'd love to be entered if I'm eligible (I'm from Canada) thank you!

pitaharmon said...

Toys are a problem here, but the thing that bugs me the most is a trail of laundry throughout the house and me bending over 50 times to pick up scattered clothes. So I would sure use the "put clothes in hamper" card. This thing is awesome.
