my daughter, 3yrs 4mnths, always talks in the third person. she will say things like "daniella doesnt want to" or "daniella is hungry". she knows the meaning of 'I' because she will say "i am daniella" to introduce herself. i dont see it as such a big problem, but other people think its a bit weird (including playschool teachers). i have told her that she can also say "i dont want to" and "i am hungry", but it doesnt seem to have sunk in.
she is 'behind' with her speech and not in therapy, so im pretty impressed with recent improvements.
do you think this is something to work on? or will it phase out on its own...
