Spring is a time of renewal. The flowers are blooming, the birds are nesting, and nature is making a fresh start. So maybe it’s a good time for a new beginning of your own.
Hoping to expand your family this year or looking to focus on your own health and wellness? This month we welcome our newest sponsor, Mansfield OBGYN Associates, a healthcare partner dedicated to compassionate, quality care for women.
Or maybe your little one is ready to start school. Then don’t miss the Independent Day School’s Early Childhood Open House THIS SATURDAY (4/26).
Perhaps you’ve noticed your child struggling with school work or while playing. It might be time to take advantage of 4D Vision Gym’s FREE near-point vision screening to see if non-invasive Vision Therapy may help improve his or her experience both in and out of the classroom. Their May Open House can show you how.
And of course, with Mother’s Day fast approaching, why not give the woman who gave you your new beginning the gift of family photos she’ll treasure forever from Kathryn Deane Photography.
So please take a minute to read a little more about the wonderful sponsors who keep things going here at OAAM. They may be just what you need to embrace this season of new beginnings.
4D VISION GYM, OPTOMETRY and VISION THERAPY, Cromwell, CT
If your child is averse to completing their academic work, has low self-esteem with regards to school, avoids reading, or is not achieving their potential, an undetected vision issue may be underlying their difficulties. At 4D Vision Gym, a vision training center in Cromwell CT, Dr. Juanita Collier MS OD and her staff show members how to utilize Vision Therapy to correct visual issues and make learning and playing easier and more fun. Using a wide array of non-invasive techniques and optometric tools, the 4D Vision Gym team helps patients overcome the visual barriers that impact their ability to do well in school, play sports, and perform everyday life activities. At the Open House on May 20 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Vision Therapy team from 4D Vision Gym will be speaking about how Vision Therapy can bridge the gap between vision, learning, and behavior. Children of all ages and parents will be able to participate in hands-on demonstrations of Vision Therapy exercises!
Schedule a complimentary, near-point vision screening: www.4DVisionGym.
