The main focus of this chapter is to provide an overview of questionnaires used in the assessment of vestibular disorders. This would include assessment of symptoms, diagnosis based on symptoms, activity limitations and participation restrictions, and evaluation of rehabilitation outcome. Examples of range of unstandardized and standardized questionnaires related to various constructs (e.g., vestibular function, depression and anxiety, positive experiences, sense of coherence, health-related quality of life) will be provided. In addition, aspects related to psychometric properties and cross-cultural adaptation of questionnaires will also be discussed.
