What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

This is an excellent answer on how a school counselor can be utilized to help a child with some social shyness.  Perhaps the school counselor offers peer groups or some resources.  

She/He may suggest that your daughter become involved in extra-curricular activities which are social in nature, such as scouts, athletics or drama.

Good luck!
