Señales de problemas relacionados con la visión in Hixson

Una amplia variedad de problemas

Hay muchos problemas visuales diferentes relacionados con el aprendizaje que pueden impactar el desempeño escolar de un niño. Habilidades como coordinación mano-ojo, habilidad para leer y para enfocar, todo está atado, no en una pequeña parte, a la visión. 

Estos problemas sólo pueden ser formalmente diagnosticados por un profesional del cuidado de los ojos, pero hay numerosas señales notables que pueden indicar que hay un problema, y es importante tanto para los padres como para los maestros el reconocer estos para que al notarse, el niño pueda recibir un diagnóstico correcto y tratamiento.

Si un problema es reconocido y tratado rápidamente, puede prevenir un pequeño problema volverse mayor.

Por qué esto importa

Expertos dicen que aproximadamente el 80 por ciento de lo que un niño aprende en la escuela es hecho visualmente. La buena visión es esencial si un niño va a alcanzar un máximo potencial académico.

Además a las obvias dificultades académicas que estos problemas pueden causar, también pueden dañar la autoestima del niño en un punto crítico en su vida.

Qué hacer

Si alguno de estos síntomas aparece, los padres del niño deberían estar informados tanto del problema como del hecho de que podría ser un problema visual (a diferencia de una discapacidad de aprendizaje.) La responsabilidad de los padres es llevar a su niño a un profesional del cuidado de los ojos para que su vista pueda ser correctamente examinada y, cualquier problema tratado.

Testimonials


Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.

He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.

It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.

Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John  are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!

Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.

Thank you!

When we first came to the practice, my son did not have huge issues, but lots of small ones- trouble with reading, sports (hitting the baseball consistently), coordination, etc- that were not easily detectable,but when put together presented issues. The staff here were all very professional and loving towards him. While I was concerned in the reading, my son was concerned with the athletic side. Seeing improvement night off the bat gave him confidence that i have nor seen in him and made him want to not only Come to therapy, but also made him want to work hard. He has surpassed his grade level and above in reading and hit his first home run this year! Thank you!!!
