Any moms here familiar with this?
Drake is now 5. At home and with family (and at walmart, ect) he's outgoing, chatty, bright. One on one with strangers, it takes him a few moments to warm up, then he's fine. But in groups on his own (Sunday School, Children's Church, Awana) he clams up.
He will talk with his SS teacher a bit, and will mind directions they give, and sometimes will join in with activities, but he doesn't speak much. Often, he'll go and stand or sit (or lay on the mat) in the corner quietly after a bit of play/class time.
He will talk to his daddy and I in church when we're together, and he did play and interact with the other 4 kids at his birthday party. At the park if one child wants to play with him, he'll do so and talk a bit. But he won't join a group. he just goes about doing and playing what he wants in the midst of them.
So, if you know about SM, are these red flags? Ideas? Suggestions? Stories to share? We're considering having him evaluated soon regardless.
Thanks so much for your time!
