AAA 2018: Hearing & Vestibular Impairment in the Pediatric Population: A Comprehensive Look at the Inner Ear (0.1 CEUs)

Presented by Micheal Castiglione AuD and Violette Lavender, AuD

CEUs: 0.1

Instructional Level: Intermediate

This course will discuss various disorders with comorbidities of vestibular and hearing impairment assessing all portions of the inner ear. Case studies for each disorder will be presented.  Simple in office screening protocol will be described and instructional videos will be utilized to assist audiologists and other professionals to determine who is at the greatest risk for vestibular loss.

Learning Objectives:

  • List three syndromes commonly associated with hearing loss and vestibular impairment.
  • Identify age-appropriate screening techniques for children at risk for a vestibular loss.
  • List two questionnaires for use in screening patients for vestibular loss.
