Radical Acceleration: Responding to Academic and Social Needs of Extremely Gifted Adolescents.
Gross, Miraca U. M.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v5 n4 p27-34 Sum 1994
This paper examines the impact of multiple grade skipping on social adjustment and self-esteem of extremely gifted students. A survey of the literature and research in Australia and the United States on well-planned and carefully monitored radical acceleration finds no evidence that students suffered social or emotional problems; to the contrary, maladjustment was more often found among highly gifted students who were not accelerated.
