This course was developed to address the gap in the identification and treatment of common pediatric vestibular disorders, autonomic dysfunction, oculomotor dysfunction, visual motion sensitivity, vestibular neuritis, and dizziness/imbalance from unknown etiologies. Effective treatment of children is challenging because they often lack the vocabulary to describe their complaints and diagnostic testing requires full cooperation.

This course was created out of frustration with the way children respond to traditional vestibular rehabilitation. Children are not “just smaller adults” and they have unique presentations and responses to intervention. Current literature finds that children have similar rates of vestibular dysfunction as adults. This has created the need for specialization intervention. This course will present current understandings of the scope of the problem, best practice, systematic evaluation and treatments to address vestibular deficits in the school-aged child and adolescent. The course combines lectures, hands-on lab, and case study to accurately and efficiently address dysfunction. This course is updated as new information and guidelines are published. The primary goal is to challenge therapists to re-think movement and stillness in their practice, using a comprehensive understanding of the vestibular system. Principles presented can be applied across the lifespan and with a multitude of disability levels

Course Objectives:
• Understand how vestibular dysfunction presents and how it affects children and adolescents
• Choose the most relevant, time efficient evaluations specific to functional deficts and be able to take these findings to create and modify a treatment program
• Modify current treatment plans to address vestibular dysfunction including advancing and dosing of the intervention
• Recognize dysfunction that can be addressed and red flags that signal the need to referral to other medical providers
• Educate patients, caregivers and other medical team members about the identified vestibular involvement in the chil's functional complaints
