Abstract
Presentation of the Lausanne school for blind and visually impaired children. 38 children were admitted in the school in 1996-1997. 16 have a visual acuity of less than 3/60. Ocular malformations of various origins are the main reason of the handicap, followed by visual lesions of central origin. Comparing the study with those of 1992 and 1993, it seems that the number of retrolental fibroplasia and cataracts (operated or not) is decreasing. The authors present the educational care of these children. At present, the goal is to maintain the children in their own family. Most of them are day pupils and the transportation organisation is therefore very important. In special cases, it is possible to leave the children in a non-specialized school, provided the children receive a good educational support by one of our specialized low-vision teachers.
