In fact they are often refered to as 'flaps 1'. The first detent on the flaps lever deploys the leading edge slats, and it is an all or nothing proposition on all of the aircraft I am familiar with. The effect aerodynamcally is much different than flaps, in that the slats (and the krueger flaps which are the inner leading edge slats) just 'thicken' the wing, greating increasing the low speed lift.
