Academic Acceleration 101 - What You Need to Know
Academic acceleration is the academic intervention with the strongest research support, yet it is still under-used in many schools. This session addresses the "Top 10" reasons to advocate for acceleration. We also will consider the role of parents and highlight, through vignettes, some of the topics that arise when discussing the prospect of whole-grade acceleration and single-subject acceleration. The primary purpose is to offer a "translation" of research into recommendations for evidence-based practice.

What is giftedness? Is it the potential for success? Shouldn't everyone have equal opportunity to be successful? When we equate giftedness with potential for note-worthy achievement in adult life, we create an inequitable criterion for children of colour, children who are economically disadvantaged, and females. Giftedness is colour-blind, is found in equal proportions in males and females, and is distributed across all socio-economic levels. Giftedness is a psychological reality... It indicates significantly different needs from the norm; and it requires early identification, intervention and accommodations to assure healthy development.
