What is Lámh?
Lámh is a manual sign system used by children and adults with intellectual disabilities and communication needs in Ireland. Lámh signs are used to support communication.
Language is vital for a child’s cognitive (mental) and social development. The use of signs in early years will help children to progress and relieves frustration but for most children signs are used as a bridge to talking.
