Identification and Nurturance of Extraordinarily Precocious Young Children. Annual Report to the Spencer Foundation (Granting Period: September 1977 through August 1978).
Robinson, Halbert B.; And Others
The intellectual and social abilities of young precocious children and the effects of educational interventions on these children are examined in this third year report of a longitudinal study of the developmental patterns of unusually precocious children. The report focuses on several studies conducted with preschool and elementary school age children during the 1977-78 granting year. Included are a brief overview of the project structure; test performance results for the 1977-78 year, (including cognitive, social, and personality factor data); descriptions of 3 educational intervention programs studied, and a report on the current status of the longitudinal study's focal group of "extraordinarily precocious" children. The appendices which comprise approximately half the documents contain program information and related letters and brochures as well as 3 papers describing the identification of intellectual precocity in young children, social development in intellectually advanced children, and the tenets of the Early Entrance/Optimal Match Program.
