Vestibular loss in young children is difficult to diagnose and challenging to treat. Vestibular function is immature at birth despite the fact that major reflexes are fully intact. Specialized diagnostic tools and treatment strategies have been developed for young children. Audiologists play a unique and critical role in the care of these patients. This presentation will examine the role of the audiologist in detail, emphasizing the common features and differences between pediatric and adult models of care for these disorders.
