  • Discuss the differences between normal and abnormal vestibular pathology and how it correlates to a clinical examination and interventions.
  • Demonstrate tests and measures that are appropriate for vestibular pathology (peripheral vestibular hypofunction, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and bilateral vestibular hypofunction) and apply results to create a comprehensive vestibular rehabilitation program.
