How readily does the child provide information? Does the child engage in normal reciprocal social communication with good articulation of both verbal and non-verbal interchanges? Are the child's overtures and responses appropriate to the interview situation or is the child overly withdrawn, overly friendly, socially inappropriate, or odd? Is the pattern of eye contact unusual in any way? Does the child maintain an appropriate social distance? Is the child unusually disinhibited, aggressive, or oppositional during the interview? Is there unusual preoccupation with idiosyncratic special interests? What is the overall quality of the rapport between the interviewer and the child?
