The Gifted Child Grows Up.
A follow-up study of 15 gifted individuals in England and Canada over a period of 10 years following their college graduation explored the following areas: family background; preceptions of school and college experiences; career choices; persistence of creative activities in adulthood; religious and political affiliations; personal relationships; and psychological and emotional adjustment. It is suggested that the emotional problems and emotional needs of gifted children may persist in adulthood and merit further study. (JW)
