“What we did is looked up the general sign language picture list on the internet and I had my daughter spell the words with sign language and saying the letter as she did… the process of looking for the letter, making the letter with her hand, and saying it set the words in her head. The day of the test I told her to use the camera in her head to look at how she shaped the letters with her hand. We did this in the kitchen as I was making dinner on Mondays ( the day she got the list and practiced all week when we had the chance) She missed 2 to 0 words a week… It really helped.”
