Is there a better way to get a specific child page?

I want to work with a specific child page of my current page. The following “works”, but seems clunky:

{% for kid in page.children() %}
    {% if kid.slug == "slides" %}
        {% for img in %}
            {{ ... }}
        {% endfor %}
    {% endif %}
{% endfor %}

Is there no way to “filter” page.children() calls at the top to return only children that match some attribute? (ie, slug==“slides”?)

Thank you.

I think '@page.children': '/slides' or '': '/slides' should work. The first will get all the children of the ‘slides’ pages, while the second (I think) should get all the ‘slides’ pages themselves.
