Splinter Intelligence: "I Am Sure He Can Do Better!"
Heckelman, R. G.
Academic Therapy, v19 n4 p409-12 Mar 1984
The author describes instances in which children perform quite well in some areas and poorly in others, and suggests that rather than being unmotivated, these students have a "splinter" type of intelligence. If the cause is cerebral damage, the teacher's attention is best placed on adjusting assignments to their strengths. (CL)
