Lámh Activities App Coming Soon!

Lámh and Down Syndrome Ireland are currently collaborating on the development a story and activity-focused App for young children. Launching in Autumn 2015, watch for news on our website and Facebook page Lámh Sign!

The App will have educational and language development goals as well as fun and activity elements: • Interactive activities involving practical words and signs are a key part of this App. Activities include signs for home and school and as you can see from the illustrations, the fun graphics place the sign presenter in colourful locations. • Down Syndrome Ireland together with Lámh organised a Story Competition for schools - pupils were asked to write stories that included a list of Lámh signs, and the 2 winning stories by children aged 8 and 9 will be signed by our sign presenters. • The App will include a library of Lámh signs and opportunities for sign practice throughout.

Our sign presenters are Lámh sign expert Maura Bolger, and Keith Hanley (previous winner of The Voice of Ireland).
