Lámh is the manual sign system used by children and adults with intellectual disability and communication needs in Ireland. Some people use Lámh as their main way of communicating, while others use Lámh signs along with speech and other methods of communication. Lámh is a type of augmentative or alternative communication.
Lámh signs are based on Irish Sign Language and natural gesture. Speech is always used with Lámh signs and only key words in a sentence are signed. There are 500 Lámh signs.
