I want to teach my dd sign language so that she can communicate with me but I have no idea where to start. Anyone know of any good books or materials I can buy?

The above is great starting off point. Neither of my children spoke until they were 4 because they have autism which manifested itself in their inability to speek, although cognitively they were very bright. We started signing with our older son when he was 2, and it was the greatest source of communication between us until he started forming words and speaking 2 years later. My younger son started learning sign at 1 year-we knew so much more about autism by then.
Research has shown that sign language and speech follow the same neuro-pthways in the brain...so learning the sign results in speaking the word much faster than without signing. My now 6 year old (younger) son uses a combination of signs and speech, and teaches me the sign when I ask!!!
