This is long, sorry. Ok, I have a little girl in my 3 year old classroom who does something I find odd. To start off, she is 3 and a half but really immature. Can't put on her shoes, feed herself, pull her pants up or down in the bathroom, get soap from the despencer and wash her hands, walk in the line (still a work in progress for the group but the other get the concept just can't quit execute it), can't open a marker or hold it well to color, not even with a closed fist, can't pinch clothes pins, has a binky but not in my class. The list goes on but you get it. Now if I wasn't already concerned about all of this, she talks to herself. Well she talks about herself to herself while referring to herself in the third person, I'm going to call her A. For example, when i was trying to show her how to use the bingo dotters, I told her to hold it and dot dot dot. Now here she is going. "Make a flower A, dot dot dot A. Make a flower at school". And she'll go on the whole entire time. She does this for EVERYTHING all day long. She bumped her head on the table and she's saying "I'm sorry A. I'm ok. A is ok. You need to be careful A". While crying because she was hurt. I'm reading online and lots of parents say their kids talk to themselves and that its normal. But I've never seen it. Two last things, she doesn't talk or have conversations with the other kids, and her mom is completely oblivious and defensive about anything I say to her about anything. Is this something that needs looking at by FDLERS or another program, or is this ok?
