My Little girl just turn a year old this Dec.1st. Lack of expressing her wants & needs brings her to hitting me or whatever else is in her path; to release her frustrations so this i hoping will help but how many words should i start off with?

Hi Ashley,

Being a one-year-old can be frustrating for everyone! You will want to start off with signs for things that are most important to her, such as eat/food, drink, and more. Use them in context (when handing her a drink, for example) and use them consistently. It may take some time, but keep it up! Here is some more information for you about which signs to start with: http://www.babies-and-sign-language.com/baby-signs-teaching-infant.html

Best of luck!
