Description: This article details what happens to the profoundly gifted student when schooled with age mates rather than intellectual peers. Anecdotes of individual children support Gross's findings that profoundly gifted children do not have their needs met in the regular classroom.

This article could be very useful for advocacy when dealing with issues of the Young Scholars we serve and meeting their needs in the regular classroom. It provides evidence of the harm that may occur if their needs are not met.
