Tip 3 – Do not anticipate and respond immediately to your child’s needs.
Do not over think your little’s needs when you are teaching her to sign. Your child will learn to sign faster if you try to ask want they are wanting rather than giving what they want.
For example: you may know your little wants milk! Try asking, “Are you wanting some milk?” while empathizing the word milk verbally and through signing! Then give your little what they want after you ask for the sign!
