Consider this example from oral communication: Baby may call water “wa-wa,” but you know she means water. You let her know you understand her, but you continue to say “water,” and eventually she says “water” too. Do the same thing with signing: When you realize that your baby is trying to communicate a sign back to you (and believe me, you’ll know), don’t get caught up in whether or not she does it just right. Applaud baby’s attempts. Encourage her by letting her know that you understand her. Don’t worry about correcting her.
