Have you ever considered the importance of the sensory system that detects movement while rehabilitating children and adolescents? The pediatric patient will experience vestibular dysfunction at similar rates as adults and any change either peripheral or central can greatly impact normal development of movement and postural control. This course will present current understanding of the scope of the vestibular dysfunction problem, best practices, systematic evaluation, and treatments addressing vestibular deficits in the school-aged child and adolescent. The course combines lecture, demonstration, and case study to address dysfunction accurately and efficiently. This course is updated as new information and guidelines are published. The primary goal is to challenge therapists to re-think movement and stability 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. Access to videos of demonstrated techniques will be included.
