Hi everyone! It’s time again to shower our sponsors with gratitude for helping us to keep things going here at Out and About Mom. And we have some pretty amazing sponsors with wonderful things to offer to CT families. Lucky us and lucky you 🙂
This month, we’re pleased to continue featuring The Independent Day School in Middlefield, CT with its unique approach to academics for age 3 through grade 8. Read on to find out more about “Fearless Learning”, and check out their summer programs as well!
We’re also excited to welcome back 4D Vision Gym, a vision training center in Cromwell, CT that can help improve learning and playing for your child with non-invasive Vision Therapy treatment. This month, they are focusing on sports vision training to help your child improve both their performance and, more importantly, their enjoyment when playing sports.
So please, take a moment to read more about each one of our wonderful sponsors, 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
Parents frequently notice that a child appears clumsy or inconsistent while playing outdoors or playing organized sports. Most parents simply hope that their son or daughter will outgrow this. Oftentimes, say experts, this could be a sign of developmental issues in children, and can lead to the appearance of clumsiness or awkwardness, both at home and on the field.
Could sports vision training be the answer?
Sports vision training is a type of Optometric Vision Therapy that can improve a child’s ability to connect with the ball. It can take a child from average, to good, to exceptional performance.
At 4D Vision Gym, a vision training center in Cromwell, CT, Dr. Juanita Collier MS OD and her staff of vision coaches help correct visual issues to make playing easier and more fun for children.
To learn more, attend our presentation on Wednesday, July 23 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Children (of all ages) and parents will be able to participate in hands-on demonstrations of Vision Therapy exercises.
THE INDEPENDENT DAY SCHOOL, Middlefield, CT
