Lámh launches brand new Lámh-A-Song 2 DVD and Learning Resource for children with intellectual disabilities in Cork

Featuring 15 nursery rhymes, Lámh-a-Song 2 was created especially for young children with intellectual disabilities, with all songs sung and signed using Lámh sign language demonstrated by teacher, Lámheen.

Supporting communication between parents, children and siblings, Lámh is a manual sign system which 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, 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. 

Lámh signs can help children and adults with communication difficulties by encouraging eye contact and attention to movement. The signs also help people to develop their vocabulary and language skills and promotes attention to movements.

Speaking at the launch of the Lámh-a-Song 2 DVD, Lámheen, DVD instructor said; “I am delighted that the new ‘Lámh-a-Song 2’ DVD and learning resource is now available to order, and the resource link is also available for download now. ‘Lámh-a-Song 2’ is especially for young Lámh users, supported by their families, carers or pre-school staff, and using the resource should be a fun activity and an opportunity for children to practice the signs. There are currently 500 Lámh signs and we will be launching more signs in the near future, with the main objective of developing and promoting Lámh as an augmentative system of communication for people with intellectual disabilities in Ireland.”

Lámh-a-Song 2 DVD costs €15.00 (including P&P) and includes songs such as Mr Sun, Ten green bottles, Colours song, Pat a cake, Black socks, Sports song, 5 in the bed, Feelings song, School song, Twinkle twinkle, Mary had a little lamb, 12345, Down by the bay, The animals went in 2 by 2, and We wish you a Merry Christmas.
