jdtm, in my opinion, does know her stuff about the challenge of social anxiety
. As I said above, shyness usually improves but social anxiety
is a psychiatric disorder. If your child does turn out to have social anxiety, you would want to address it for her sake. She does sound like she is talking some in terms of your comment that she is trying to direct the class. I agree about socializing. My son had some social issues (as many sensory kids do)------- and we worked hard on it.
