The BINGO support programme for the academically under-achieving gifted boy in secondary school. Research shows that more boys than girls experience such problems and consequently their full potential is not realised. Hence the focus on an effective assistance and support programme. Literature studies show that many existing support programmes target primary school pupils and that South African support programmes are limited. The study focused on assistance to the under-achieving gifted adolescent boy through an interdisciplinary team approach. Two questionnaires facilitated identification of the unique needs and problems of the learner and focused on his totality. The Accumulative BINGO Plan chart contains suggestions for assistance. Support is intensive on a mainly one-to-one basis and is justifiable from an educational viewpoint. Evaluation of the learner and the support programme yielded positive results.
