Helping Gifted Adolescents Cope with Social Stigma.
Swiatek, Mary Ann
Gifted Child Today Magazine, v21 n1 p42-46 Jan-Feb 1998
Examines ways of helping gifted adolescents cope with a perceived stigma. Research is cited showing that many gifted adolescents believe they are treated differently because of their abilities and behave differently because of this belief, including denial of one's giftedness. The school's role, ability grouping, and special needs of gifted girls are also addressed. (DB)
