The Centre national de ressources handicaps rares Robert Laplane has a role of specific clinical expertise, skills transfer and development, and specialist networking, as well as that of formalising and disseminating knowledge concerning the consequences and circumstances of rare disabilities.
The Centre de ressources is specifically focussed on those which concern: deaf children with impairments associated with their deafness; children with complex language disorders associated with other impairments or pathologies; and adults with deafness and/or complex language disorders, affected with associated impairments within the framework of congenital or acquired pathologies.
All of our work aims to improve the quality of life of, and the quality of care and support offered to, those affected with rare disabilities, across the whole country. It plays a part in improving the course of life of each person we accompany, in terms of independence and social participation.
