In this article the author describes in detail the adaptation of adult vestibular testing techniques to the pediatric population. Assessment tools discussed include video-oculography (VOG), computerized rotary chair (CRC), computerized dynamic posturography (CDP), and vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs). As with hearing impairment, the earlier a vestibular disorder is identified, the earlier remediation strategies may begin. Among the most crucial aspects of vestibular testing in pediatric patients are obtaining of pediatric normative data and adapting adult techniques so that younger children may be evaluated.
