Striking Out: Suicide and the Gifted Adolescent.
Delisle, Jim
Gifted Child Today (GCT), v11 n1 p41-44 Jan-Feb 1988
This reprinted 1982 article with a 1988 update describes how the emotional and social development of gifted adolescents often lags behind their academic aptitudes. Difficulties with peers, emotional isolation, and fear of failure can lead to suicide. Preventive steps include respect, awareness, tolerance, and participation by parents and teachers. (VW)
