Friendships: The Middle School Years

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.

Thursdays — September 8th — October 13th

5 pm—6 pm

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

Call Janet at 815-288-1905 for questions and to register by September 1st. If you want to download the pdf flyer version for this information: “Friendships: The Middle School Years.”
