Pediatric Vestibular Loss: The Effect of Vestibular Loss on Visual Acuity
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
Vestibular loss can co-occur with hearing loss. One functional effect of vestibular loss is
decreased dynamic visual acuity. There is some speculation that vestibular loss can also
affect reading and/or reading acuity. This presentation outlines the relationship between
vestibular loss and both dynamic and static visual acuity and its possible effect on
reading and other daily activities.
This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention. The session
was developed by, and presenters invited by, Hearing, Tinnitus, and Vestibular Science.
You will be able to:
- describe the prevalence of vestibular loss in children with hearing loss
- describe how vestibular loss affects visual acuity in children
- describe who is a candidate for vestibular rehabilitation
