Kids with Special Needs That's a cool idea!

Here’s a great idea to help volunteers communicate with kids who sign

This past weekend I went to visit Crossroads Church in Cincinnati.  I took a team of Kids Ministry Volunteers with me so we could learn from them.  It’s about an 8 hour drive from where I live, and I was excited to take a team of people with me so they could see the church, and their kids ministry in action.  Crossroads staff and volunteers were so welcoming and went out of their way to help us learn all that we could.  This was my 2nd visit, and I learned many new things.

Crossroads has a room for kids with special needs.  This room is available for children who would benefit from a quieter space.  Displayed on the wall in this room was a Sign Language Poster.  Many children are able to communicate through sign language, and this poster was a great tool for volunteers who many not use sign language on a regular basis.  You can find this poster on Etsy.  I’ve already ordered one.

      Hi Caitlin! Can we apply the same English sign language to another languages?
