Visual auditory agnosia is diffuculty in recognizing using her sense of sight and hearing.
My personal experience with childen her age shows that there is a wide range of what is "normal". Some children develop faster than other children and some a little bit slower.
You mention that she has difficulty understanding spoken language, I wonder if she has any hearing problems, if she does this needs to be addressed.
How is her social aspect of her development? Is she able to "communicate" with you at least nonverbally? Like pointing to milk or toys. Is she isolative in playing?
I would recommend working closely with her pediatrician to rule out any physical causes of her problem and address it as early as possible to prevent any bad outcome of her development.

You should call your local school system. If you are in the USA, the federal government requires that all school systems provide early intervention programs for children who are at risk for later problems in school due to medical or other conditions that impact their ability to learn. The school system should have a Speech and Language Pathologist who is best qualified to help you determine if sign language will be helpful in her case. At your daughter's age they may even have a home-based program where they will come to see the two of you at home and involve you directly in her program. The sooner you hook up with them the better!

you should probably send her to special schools to teach her sighn language and you should take those classes with her and then you can cumminicate with her

You should make pictures of hands showing people how to sign.  We enjoy doing signlanuage.  We do it in class and sometimes we get in trouble.
