Friendships: The Middle School Years

Who & What: Across the middle school years, the social skills required for successful peer relationships become more complex, especially for children with social skill difficulties. During this virtual group, children in 5th through 8th grades will learn about middle school friendships and the social skills they need to make and keep friends while they are social distancing. This group is appropriate for children who struggle to make friends, children who have trouble understanding social relationships and children who lack awareness of appropriate behaviors with peers.

When: Thursdays, October 8th — November 19th  /  5pm to 6pm

Cost: The group is free of charge, but space is limited — so sign up soon!

How Do I Sign Up?: You must have a camera-enabled device (cellphone/smartphone, tablet or computer) with sound/microphone, internet access and downloaded app (no charge). Call Janet at 815-288-1905 x106 for questions and to register by September 28th. If you would like to download the pdf flyer version for this information: “Friendships: The Middle School Years“.
