Education Resources Inc offers a new online series, “Vestibular Rehabilitation for the School-Aged Child and Adolescent,” for occupational and physical therapists, taught by Inger Brueckner, MS, PT, an expert in pediatric vestibular dysfunction.

The online course, which benefits practitioners in schools, hospitals, OPD, and clinic settings, combines lectures, lab demonstrations, and presentations to teach evidence-based techniques and identify and treat common vestibular conditions in children and young adults.

Through the course, Brueckner teaches practitioners how to describe the vestibular system and common pediatric dysfunctions to patients and caregivers. The course highlights the role of therapy in managing and treating vestibular disorders including mTBI, Trauma, BPPV, autonomic and oculomotor dysfunction, visual motion sensitivity, vestibular neuritis, and dizziness imbalance and migrainous disorders. Clinicians will learn to design, implement, and modify treatments to ensure optimal patient success.

“Having researched and practiced in the field of vestibular dysfunction and rehabilitation for more than 25 years, I understand the challenges in diagnosing and treating and children and adolescents,” Brueckner says, in a media release. “I am excited to offer my course in an online setting to help clinicians address the needs of this unique population.”
