Acceleration and Executive Functioning

Part 10 of Davidson Gifted Perspectives, a video series that examines a number of different gifted-related issues and viewpoints.

When making acceleration decisions, some of the most common concerns that parents have are executive function and social dynamics. Can a student be successful in a higher grade if their executive function skills are still developing? Can a student be successful on an accelerated track if they are still developing their social-emotional skills?  

In the recent members-only virtual event, Understanding the Profoundly Gifted Path, one of our Family Services team members responds to these questions and more.
