Southern, W. Thomas; And Others
Gifted Child Quarterly, v33 n1 p29-35 Win 1989

Though negative reactions were weak along some dimensions, practitioners from each category expressed consistently conservative sentiments toward the value of acceleration and viewed the process as potentially hazardous.
