Mandy and I love having new adventures with our kids and then writing about them for the blog. It’s become such a wonderful part of our lives that we almost can’t imagine what we’d do without it! But the truth is, none of this would be possible without the generous support of our wonderful sponsors. They keep things running here at Out and About Mom, and we can’t thank them enough.
But beyond that, our sponsors have so much to offer to CT families like yours. So please, take a moment to read more about each one, and share this post with friends, relatives, neighbors and coworkers if you think they might be interested in learning more about these family-centric businesses and organizations. It’s one simple thing you can do to help support our site and keep us “scouting your CT outing.”
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. Register for our complimentary seminar on June 25 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Our Vision Therapy team will speak about “Vision And Success At School” and how you can turn children who “hate” or avoid reading into interested readers!
Schedule a complimentary, near-point vision screening: www.4DVisionGym.
