Lámh Launch Brand New Lámh -A- Song 2 DVD and Learning Resource

Lámh Ireland recently launched their brand new Lámh-a- Song 2 DVD, book and learning resource for young Lámh users.  Including 15 nursery rhymes, Lámh-a- Song 2 is especially for young children with intellectual disabilities, with all songs sung and signed using Lámh along with teacher Lámheen. Lámh is a manual sign system used by children and adults with intellectual disability and communication needs in Ireland. Supporting communication between parents, children and siblings, Lámh is used as a stepping stone for children and adults with intellectual disabilities to communicate with the world. Originally developed in the early 1980s in order to create a unified, standardised, Irish-based approach to signing for those with intellectual disabilities and communication needs, Lámh speech is always used with signs and only key words in a sentence are signed. Lámh currently has 500 signs and has evolved and added signs since its initial development.

Pictured at the launch of Lámh -a- Song 2 are (L-R) Anna Thompson (9); Rebecca Dundon (7), Jenny Dundon (11) and Adam McHugh (8), who all appear in the new Lámh -a -Song 2 DVD and learning resource.
