Category: Vestibular (V)
Children with sensorineural hearing loss are at increased risk for vestibular dysfunction; however, it is not common practice for children to be screened for these disorders. Vestibular dysfunction may lead to developmental delays, possibly impacting educational growth. This protocol provides clinicians with a screening tool to determine who should be referred for further diagnostic testing and possible rehabilitation.
