Lámh is a manual sign system used by children and adults with intellectual disability and communication needs in Ireland. It is a type of augmentative or alternative communication system (AAC). A decision as to whether Lámh is the appropriate communication support for an individual is made only after an assessment has been carried out. Lámh signs are based on Irish Sign Language (ISL). Speech is always used with Lámh signs. Lámh signs are used to support communication.
