Ortografía: una habilidad visual in Bellflower

Amplify Eyecare of Greater Long Beach

¿Has notado en tu hijo o estudiante problemas de ortografía en cualquiera de las siguientes maneras?

  • Letra ilegible
  • Letras se confunden como la “d”y la “b”
  • Muchas palabras con falta de ortografía
  • Poco espacio
  • Le cuesta escribir en líneas regladas
  • Escribe lento
  • El niño se cansa mucho al deletrear
  • El niño trata de evitar escribir completamente

Si alguno de arriba suena familiar, es posible que el problema detrás de los problemas de ortografía estén relacionados con las habilidades visuales de tu niño. La buena noticia es que hay un campo completo de optometría de desarrollo que pueden ayudar a tu niño a mejorar sus habilidades visuales para obtener mejores resultados de ortografía.

¿Cómo la ortografía está relacionada con la visión?

La visión es mucho más que una vista 20/20. Nuestros ojos son parte del sistema visual, lo que significa que deben cooperar y trabajar correctamente entre sí y, además, deben comunicarse con el cerebro para lograr la visión más efectiva. Si algo en el sistema visual está desequilibrado, puede afectar las actividades cotidianas, como la ortografía, la lectura y muchas otras funciones esenciales.

Más del 75% de las pruebas en la escuela pierden un problema visual

Cuando un niño tiene problemas de ortografía podría ser una experiencia frustrante para los padres, para el maestro y por supuesto para el niño que le cuesta. Llevar a tu hijo o que un maestro le advierta a un padre de llevar a su hijo a un optometrista de desarrollo para un examen visual especializado y evaluación, podría ser la clave para ayudar a este niño a mejorar su ortografía y hasta sobresalir en desempeño escolar. El optometrista de desarrollo es capaz de detectar si hay alguna habilidad visual que requiere fortalecerse y puede proveer entrenamiento profesional para ayudar al niño a maximizar su sistema visual para tratar los desafíos visuales que el niño podría estar experimentando tratando de deletrear.

La ortografía involucra muchas habilidades, incluyendo la integración de las habilidades de lenguaje, visuales y motrices.

I haven't actually used the optometrist side, so my review is limited to the vision therapy offered.  This office was recommended by my occupational therapist for the treatment of my double vision following a stroke.

Love this location. I had a brain injury accident from day one one. All the team make you feel you still important and hope in the horizon after when the medical system fell you miserably. Dr. Ikeda very professional and very understanding about your issue. Two tombs up.

My husband and I were immediately impressed with Dr Ikeda. I was hit by a car while cycling which caused broken bones and three brain injuries. The brain injuries caused double vision. Dr. Ikeda examined my eyes and got me started on vision therapy with his occupational therapist who specializes in vision therapy.  She (Chris) is absolutely great.  I am impressed with the array of tools used to help recover my binocular vision.  I am doing things I never thought were possible (balance boards etc).  Chris pushes me and keeps me motivated. I really enjoy my sessions with her.  The office staff is always friendly and they have a wonderful appointment reminder tool that makes it easy to keep my calendar up to date. I am happy the rehab center at Little Co. of Mary recommended them!!

The Vision Therapy is handled in a separate office through a different door from the shared waiting room. Chris, the vision therapist, has a wide and varied assortment of tools, equipment and resources to best evaluate and treat most vision issues. After just a few visits, my double vision became easier to control, using exercises developed during the therapy process. It was time well-spent.

I have been coming here since I can remember. I love it here. The staff is so amazing and nice. They explain everything they gonna do and never make you feel rushed. Dr. Ikeda has always been my doctor and I would never want another one. He is the doctor for my whole family and is always asking how everyone is doing. I am also so crazy about picking out my frames and have to try so many and each person who helps me take the time and lets me try them all on. I would never want to go anywhere else! I definitely would recommend this office to anyone looking for a great eye doctor.

This is not for the eye exam but for the frames selection portion. I brought my prescription from Kaiser here with my VSP insurance. The reception staff was very polite and professional.  Manny helped me to pick out frames and explain my coverage.  Very helpful and patient not like the individual at the other place I rated here on Yelp.  I was running late and he still helped me and was not bothered at all.  I am so glad I came here ..........very pleased.

Very professional staff and pleasant.
