Introductory to Intermediate
Evaluation and Treatment of Positional Vertigo in Children: is an introductory, lab-based course geared for rehabilitation clinicians (physical therapists, occupational therapists, physiatrists).
The program content is designed to teach the clinician to be able to screen for the most common cause of positional vertigo and perform the appropriate treatment based on examination findings.
The labs are designed to be performed in a treatment space similar to that of a pediatric gym, so treatment maneuvers are modified to be performed on mats on the floor and mimic the realistic environment that clinicians operate in pediatric settings.
Joseph Adams is a Board-Certified Specialist in Neurologic Rehabilitation with advanced training in Vestibular Rehabilitation and has been working with patients with dizziness and vertigo for over 10 years at the Rusk Institute at NYU Langone Medical Center, and most recently at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
He is actively involved in clinical research including brain injury rehabilitation, vestibular outcome measures, reactive balance, post concussion syndrome, and early mobilization for patients after brain tumor resection.
He is the author of "Vestibular Rehabilitation for the NCS Exam," and lectures regularly on vestibular rehabilitation as an adjunct professor at Touro College and Columbia University.
Disclosure: Joseph Adams receives a speaking fee for his presentation. He has no relevant non-financial relationships to disclose.

PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BRING MATS FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE LAB
By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:
Identify signs and symptoms of the most common causes of positional vertigo in the pediatric population in the acute, subacute, school, and outpatient setting.
Recognize red flags that require immediate follow-up with the referring physician in simple and medically complex cases
Utilize a vestibular and oculomotor screening to distinguish between the 6 main subtypes of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) and Benign Vertigo of Childhood (BVC)
Develop a plan of care based on best available research for the treatment of BPPV and BVC
During laboratory break-out sessions, participants will be able to:
Perform repositioning maneuvers based on relevant examination findings, including:
-Canalith repositioning maneuver
- Liberatory maneuver
- Deep head-hanging maneuver
Due to the lab, space is limited!
