Pediatric Vestibular Loss: The Effect of Vestibular Loss on Visual Acuity (WEB19852)

Presenter(s): Kristen Janky, AuD, PhD, CCC-A; Lauren Calandruccio, PhD, CCC-A
Course Description


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.
