Is My Child Ready for Middle School?

The Summit School is a leader and innovator in educating students with dyslexia and other learning differences. We are committed to not only a rigorous program designed to prepare students for success in high school and beyond, but also raising awareness of children with learning differences and connecting families to available resources.

The Summit School, through the Summit Resource Center, is pleased to announce a series of Community Talks, open to the public and free of charge. These talks will be held virtually and are designed to bring relevant, timely and actionable information to parents and educators. Participants will gain valuable information, have access to experts and highly trained professionals and will take away resources that can be used immediately.

February 23, 2021 – Is My Child Ready for Middle School?

The transition to middle school can be challenging for many students. Some have difficulty adjusting to its size and complexity. Others have problems adjusting to the social pressures. Still others have trouble adjusting to the more rigorous academic expectations. Suddenly, the work habits that enabled students to get by in elementary school may be inadequate for middle school success. If your child has a learning difference, these challenges can be even more difficult.

This Community Talk will focus on:

  • Preparing for middle school.
  • Understanding common middle school fears.
  • Transition to middle school for a child with a learning difference.
