Pediatrics (Infants and Young Children)- half day (4 hours)
Balance disorders in infants and young children are not common, but do occur and their evaluation requires a different set of protocols than are needed with children older than 4 years of age, who can typically be tested with adult techniques. Motor Maturational Milestones and behavioral assessment are a primary method of evaluating this age group along with several technologies such as VEMP and vHIT. The incidence of balance disorders in children is highest with BPV of Infancy (migraine variant) and in children with congenital SNHL.
