Description

The growing use of telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked the need for alternative modalities of assessment and intervention. Vestibular assessments are included among services that audiologists may provide via telehealth; however, continued work is needed to provide additional support for the use of virtual assessments. The Dynamic Visual Acuity test (DVA) has the potential to be used as a virtual screener to identify patients with vestibular dysfunction who need further diagnostic assessment. The results of this study will provide evidence for the feasibility of telehealth for vestibular screening.
