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.
- Understand how vestibular dysfunction presents and how it affects children and adolescents
- Choose the most relevant, time efficient evaluations and observation specific to functional deficits and be able to take these findings to create and modify a treatment program
- Modify current treatment plans to address vestibular dysfunction including advancing and dosing of the intervention
- Recognize dysfunction that can be addressed and red flags that signal the need to referral to other medical providers
- Educate patients, caregivers, and other medical team members about the identified vestibular involvement in the child’s functional complaints
This course is appropriate for PTs, PTAs, OTs OTAs, and health practitioners that work with school-aged children and adolescents AGE 5-18.
