Assessment of the Pediatric Vestibular System: Making the Most of Your Little One’s Time (0.1 CEUs)

Assessment of the Pediatric Vestibular System: Making the Most of Your Little One’s Time (0.1 CEUs)

Recorded,  June 6, 2018; 12 noon - 1:00 p.m. ET

Presenter(s): Violette Lavender

CEUs: 0.1

Duration: 60 minutes

Instructional Level: Intermediate 

Program Focus: Knowledge

Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

  1. Describe three techniques to evaluating the vestibular ocular Reflex in young children.
  2. List a possible test battery, in order of importance, for a child below three-years-old. 
  3. Identify two modifications to the vestibular test battery to adapt it for young children. 

Description: Working with children proves challenging but rewarding for most clinicians. Many techniques for helping a child through the traditional audiologic test battery have been well documented. There is much less evidence available regarding techniques for completing the vestibular test battery in young children. Traditionally, videonystagmography was the gold standard for testing adults. Now, with advancements in head impulse testing and vestibular evoked myogenic potentials, children can be tested successfully. This course will focus on answering the clinical question for each child and selecting the most appropriate test battery. Due to factors such as attention span and anxiety for testing, weighing the most important tests for certain populations will be discussed. 

Note: Due to the large number of media files in the presentation, please allow extra time for the slides to appear when starting the webinar.
