The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provides a library of Gospel Language Symbols, which are simple images for more than 150 gospel terms. The images in the library can be used to teach the gospel to children of all abilities.
The library was originally designed for individuals who use images to communicate. However, those with varying abilities can also use the image library to learn key concepts and vocabulary of the gospel of Jesus Christ in concrete ways.
These new tools will help individuals and families communicate clearly about the gospel no matter their reading level, their native language, or the nature of their work. The following groups are just some of the people who can benefit from using the new library:
- People who are neurodiverse
- People who are nonverbal
- People with other cognitive delays
- Parents teaching at home
- Teachers instructing at church
- People communicating in their non-native language
The images can also be downloaded for printing and other offline use. Over the next two years, over 600 more symbols will be added to the library.
