Mental Acceleration.
Elkind, David
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v11 n4 p19-31 Sum 1988
Use of the term "acceleration" to describe interventions to enhance children's intellectual potential is inappropriate, as the term cannot by justified from the standpoint of mental measurement, mental growth, genetics, or education. Maximizing a child's potential through creation of stimulating environments is recommended rather than concentration on early attainment of skills. (JDD)
