What is Lámh?

Lámh is a manual hand sign language system used by children and adults with intellectual disabilities and communication difficulties in Ireland.

Today, many children with special needs use Lámh successfully at home, school and in the community.

Children with a variety of diagnosis such as Down syndrome, autism, and developmental delays, benefit enormously from using signs to communicate. 

Why use Lámh?

Lámh supports young children to develop a good foundation for speech and language development.

By using signs, children learn to listen and pay attention, they grow vocabulary at a faster pace and experience less frustration as they can be easily understood by using signs.

Children who use Lámh need the support of the people around them.
