Spotting the Camouflaged Gifted Student.
Gleason, Joni J.
Gifted Child Today (GCT), v11 n3 p21-22 May-Jun 1988
Gifted students sometimes camouflage themselves behind a facade of underachievement. Causes of underachievement include: (1) social and emotional conflict due to societal misconceptions, expectations, and stereotypes; low self-concept; and family instability; (2) a stifling or inhibiting academic environment; and (3) physiological and neurological impairments.
