Training Courses for Family & Friends

Lámh Courses are usually organised locally by the family's service provider

A detailed assessment will help to decide if a person needs or can benefit from Lámh. It may be that another communication support would be more useful. There are many types of communication supports available, and different supports will suit different individuals. Lámh might not be the communication system that is best for your child/brother/sister, and the assessment will help to determine this.

Lámh training courses for family and friends are given by Lámh Tutors who are speech and language therapists, home teachers and other staff members who work in services. There Lámh tutors run Lámh training as part of their regular role.

Training for Family & Friends

An introductory workshop for families of babies who may go on to use Lámh signs or families who require a small number of signs.
The Family Lámh Course can be attended by parents, siblings, grandparents and others close to the family. The Family Lámh Course gives families the skills to support their child's sign use alongside Lámh sign training. Families say they enjoy the opportunity to share experiences with other families.
Families who have been to the Lámh Family Course may be interested in the Part Two Family Course, to learn more signs, or get sign practice with a Lámh Tutor, or to talk about their Lámh use with other families.
