Señales de problemas relacionados con la visión in Santa Clarita

Amplify Eyecare Santa Clarita

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.
