About this issue

In this issue you will find two papers on vestibular function in children and adolescents. The work by Christy is particularly appealing as it demonstrates the work that must go on as we assume greater roles in establishing human movement system diagnoses.  This is an article that will help you understand how diagnostic tests are developed.  I challenge you to become familiar with the concepts of sensitivity, specificity and ROC curves!

The other paper by Alsalaheen and colleagues is directed toward the increasing concern and focus on adolescents with concussion. Their work begs for follow-up research that would enable development of even more appropriate tests and measures for this population.

Finally, I would like to bring your attention to the Clinical Bottom Line by Ordorica and Rohnert that poses a set of questions, specifically constructed for use by journal clubs.  The questions are a result of the recommendation from the Section on Pediatrics’ Knowledge Translation Work Group to foster readers’ engagement in reading and deliberating the content of the articles published in the journal.
