The study of vestibular disorders in children has gained popularity over recent years. This chapter thoroughly describes the adaptation of adult techniques so that pediatric patients may be successfully evaluated. Assessment tools include strategies that may be implemented more informally during the medical/physical examination and more formal evaluative techniques, including videooculography, rotary chair, computerized dynamic posturography, vestibular evoked myogenic potentials, and others. It is crucial that the clinician obtains pediatric normative data, as opposed to comparing pediatric evaluative results with adult normative data. As with hearing impairment, the earlier a vestibular disorder is identified, the earlier the necessary remediation strategies may begin.
