Dr. Kinder developed the concept of "Are You Exercising Right Now?" 15 years ago to help recover from an injury. After tearing several shoulder muscles, she needed to practice rehabilitation and strength training exercises -but working full-time, she found it impossible to find extra time in her day for exercise.
With her medical training, she knew every bit of exercise counted, and that she didn’t have to set aside large chunks of time. And so she started exercising every chance she had - between patients, while getting gas or folding clothes, and even when brushing her teeth. She not only got stronger, but noticed an increase in energy, her moods improved, and she had less "brain-fog." She shared these techniques with patients and friends who were excited it could be so easy to get into shape- without hours at the gym.
The only pitfall she discovered, as with any exercise routine, was that if unexpected things popped up in her schedule, she would forget to exercise that day. When life got really crazy, a few days of missed exercise could turn into a week. That’s when she started developing exercise reminders to keep in the car, at work, and on the microwave to get her back into the habit of exercising at every opportunity.
When Dr. Kinder began developing her exercise ideas into products, she did so with busy parents in mind, as she had three jobs, a child with Down syndrome, and newborn twin boys! The exercises can be done anytime, anywhere (she purposefully created exercises she could do while grocery shopping without anyone knowing - no, you won’t be embarrassed to do them!), and by anyone of any fitness level. As you read this, you could have been "Exercising Right Now," too!

It is important to note that the Down syndrome Thrival Guides, Teach Baby, and ENK™ educational products were all developed personally by Dr. Kinder. After Ella was born, Dr. Kinder set out on a mission to discover how to teach and keep on track developmentally a child with Down syndrome. She consulted physical, occupational, speech, developmental, music, and oral-motor therapists as well as doctors and teachers. She researched extensively available toys, books, and other educational products and found, to her dismay, that many of the things needed for Ella simply did not exist. This meant Dr. Kinder would spend hours, days - weeks creating what Ella needed to give her the best chance at thriving, and not just surviving.
At first, the products Dr. Kinder developed were just for Ella - and Ella did well, staying on-track developmentally and often ahead of suggested guidelines. When Ella’s twin brothers were born, Dr Kinder used the same educational tools to teach them, again with success. With her knowledge of early brain development, she realized these products were needed by ALL children, as birth to age five is the best time to teach a child.
Dr. Kinder vowed to make life easier for other new parents by developing products that make teaching their child fun and convenient; parents can teach during their normal daily routine without having to find non-existent extra time.
Though she cannot guarantee the same results for all children with Down syndrome, the educational products Dr. Kinder developed worked for her daughter. Ella was able to read at 19 months and has kept on track developmentally, even starting kindergarten a whole year early. The products can be used not only for children with Down syndrome and other Special Needs but for any child. The products allow for making the most of every opportunity to teach - from mealtime to nap time to even riding in the car. The current collection of educational products available on this website is constantly being expanded and updated, so please check back often.
