Vestibular Disorders: Early Identification in Children Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Online Course, Self-directed
2.00 CPE Credits  
Free

Vestibular disorders and motor disorders are a largely ignored secondary disability of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Though some research reports over 50% of these children suffer from these ailments, very little education is offered to early intervention providers and teachers about the red flags, diagnostic evaluations, behavioral symptomology, and potential habilitation.    In this course, we will describe vestibular disorders and provide information about the reported frequency of vestibular disorders among children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We will discuss “red flags” and assessment procedures. We will also discuss the ramifications for motor delays and safety issues for children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing with this disorder as well as recent literature on remediation.    Featuring
