Developmental Placement of Intellectually Gifted Children.
Christopherson, Steven L.
The paper describes a policy of placement of gifted children within the regular school program according to each gifted child's intellectual, educational, and other development. The rationale for such a placement policy rests on a developmental conception of gifted children being like older children. The policy of developmental placement is contrasted with the policies of enrichment and separate programs. The relative advantages of developmental placement are seen to make it more feasible for schools to meet the needs of gifted children. (Author/SBH)
