Socrates was distracted but not fearful during the tag interaction and during the resources portion of the assessment Socrates was easy to handle when engaged with the items. Socrates appears to be sociable but he can be shy and fearful at times, in addition we recommend that introductions are done slowly, and Socrates be given the opportunity to interact at his own pace, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “experience” adopter.
