He does better at completing one task at a time; he does not do well with multitasking. He sometimes test the boundaries of caregivers in order to get what he wants. He enjoys meeting new people and loves becoming a role model. He has difficulty expressing himself appropriately when frustrated. He can be sporadic at times and tends to lose interest easily.
