Residential Services

The goal of residential living is to provide a safe and caring environment where students can live and learn.  This setting allows students and transition residents to be immersed in culture and social interaction while gaining tools and knowledge for their independence.  

Louisiana Schools for the Deaf and the Visually Impaired

Students are housed in dormitories on campus and are supervised by supportive staff.  Each residential student is required to have self-care skills (or the ability to develop them) and social skills to share a room with other students.  All students are required to follow established dormitory rules.  Residential living is a privilege and is available for students who qualify. For more information regarding residential services, please email Sandy Charlet, Director of Non-Academic Student Services.

Louisiana Special Education Center (LSEC)


Students and residents ages 3 to 32 enrolled in the school or transitional program are provided year-round residential services and supervised 24/7 by residential support staff and nurses. Unlike School for the Visually Impaired and the School for the Deaf, LSEC residents are not required to have self-care skills, however able-residents are supported and taught how to develop those skills appropriately in order to transition successfully into society. All students and residents are required to followed established rules and policy. For more information please call 318.487.5484 and ask for the residential services coordinator.
