You can see an example of EVERY-YEAR (or ANNUAL/ANNUALLY) in the "Regularity Examples" video above from ASL 2 - Unit 3: Duration and Regularity. EVERY-YEAR is signed by taking both hands in fists, with your dominant hand on top of your non-dominant hand (like the beginning of the sign YEAR). Your dominant hand moves forward into the 1-handshape pointing out and back into the starting position twice.
For this sign, you just sign A-P-T like it is shown. This is called lexicalized fingerspelling and it has become the sign for APARTMENT.
