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
