This course was built in partnership with The Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy.

This course will focus on the validation of clinical outcome tools for children with vestibular hypofunction and dosing of interventions to improve postural control and gaze stability in children with broad balance impairments and/or vestibular hypofunction. Intense interventions for children with cerebral palsy; oculomotor and vestibular function for individuals with concussion will be discussed.
