Church of Jesus Christ Launches New Gospel Languages Symbols Library

New resources are available to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to children of all abilities. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has launched a new Gospel Language Symbols library, which contains simple images for more than 150 gospel terms.

“We are thrilled when we consider how these gospel language symbols can help children who are nonspeaking to better understand the gospel,” said Sister Amy A. Wright, First Counselor in the Primary General Presidency.

“We hope the Primary teacher serving children that are nonverbal, and loving parents as well, will consider how they can use these symbols to better reinforce learning about God’s plan and His doctrine,” said Sister Wright.

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.

The 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

Over the next two years, over 600 additional symbols will be added to the library. For more information, visit https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/life-help/disabilities. The library can also be found on the Gospel Library app. Click on Life Help, then Disabilities. The images can also be downloaded for printing and other offline use.

For additional disability access and resources, contact disabilityservices@churchofjesuschrist.org.
