How to teach one year old the difference between this or that? Is there ASL sign for it?

I want to make it easier to understand when my daughter points at things. I want to know if she wants “this” or “that” between things. How do you communicate with your babies?

    Teach her the ASL signs for the things she generally wants and points to

    We are also doing the same but I wanted to know if there is a sign for choices. For when she is pointing at many things and I want to find out which one she wants. So like do you want this item or that?

    Maybe you could try number one and number 2?

    I would only present two items at a time and use their basic names. “Do you want the apple or banana?” Hold them both up before her and let he point to one of the two. Maybe only having two options would help. And if she is able to take an option from you that is also a response.

    Thank you for your suggestions. Will keep practicing with her to make it easier for her to express herself:)
