I had another SRF participant come into the lab this evening. The session went really well, he seemed to have a great time and the family was so nice. I've noticed that some of the eight year olds really don't seem entertained by the toys during the direction task, most of them seem to feel silly playing with the dolls. The kid who came tonight though seemed to have quite a bit of fun with them, he had a good imagination! The session was a little tricky in that he was pretty chatty. He definitely tried to have conversations during the tasks that he was supposed to be completing by himself, so that was a little tricky. I've noticed that a lot with the eight year olds, they seem to ask a lot more questions and want to talk during the tasks. Overall though, the session went just fine, no problems at all!
