Bridging Friendships with Communication

I'm thrilled to bring you a special video addressing a question from Ciara Olwill, a special education teacher at St. Mary's National School in Virginia, County Navan. 

Ciara aims to create an inclusive environment in her school by introducing basic Lámh signs to all students, ensuring that children who communicate with Lámh can connect with everyone.

And Ciara says...


Hi, Sylvia.

I'm a special education teacher in a mainstream school. We have one class for children with moderate learning disabilities.

The children in this class learn Lámh using a sign-of-the-week approach.

I would like to teach the other children in the school functional love phrases to use with the children from the special class.

Can you help me with this? Your website, articles, and videos have always been so helpful to me.

Kind regards, Kira.


In this video, I offer practical guidance to Ciara and all of you who are also passionate about expanding the communication world of children who use Lámh. We'll explore five essential signs and accompanying phrases to enhance communication and inclusion.

Whether you're an educator or a parent eager to empower children who use Lámh by teaching it to their peers and siblings, this video is a must-watch. By the end of the video, you'll have the tools and insights to expand your child's communication world.
