Vestibular Therapy for the School-Aged Child and Adolescent

Course Description:

This course is designed to help clinicians tailor their vestibular therapy treatments to meet the needs of children aged 5-18. New research has suggested that this population is vastly under served. Children are often difficult to treat effectively because they do not have the vocabulary to describe their complaints, and diagnostic testing requires full cooperation to be useful. This course was developed to address the gap in identification and treatment of common pediatric vestibular conditions such as mTBI, trauma, BPPV, migrainous disorders, autonomic dysfunction, oculomotor dysfunction, visual motion sensitivity vestibular neuritis, and dizziness/imbalance from unknown etiology.

This course will present current evidence, hypothesis of pathology treatment ideas for successful programs to help identify, and progress rehabilitation programs with the goal of improved postural and gaze stability. This course combines lecture, hands on lab, video and case presentations to help the practitioner diagnose and treat specifically for the younger patient. The techniques presented can also be applied to adult populations.

This course is appropriate for Physical Therapists and Assistants, Occupational Therapists and Assistants, Certified Athletic Trainers and health practitioners that work with school-aged children and adolescents.
