Austin is a Kindergartener. His teacher is Mrs. Gray (who also taught Aidan). I met with his teacher after his individual assessment and she started by saying that Austin was reluctant to talk with her. I said he was reluctant to talk with me too - because we are girls! Austin will warm up to kindergarten. In fact, now he is counting down the days until he gets to stay in class a full day.
Aidan is in 2nd grade. He is very independent, however he doesn't want to make a mistake. He headed off to his classroom by himself but a few minutes later was tapping me saying all the doors were closed and he couldn't find his room. He got distracted by the utility closet and adult bathroom doors - his room door was in fact open and he had friends calling him to sit next to them when he walked in the room.
