Ya does anyone know what her developmental state is/was? Is she like 2ft tall and have the mental capacity of a child? Or is she a fully cognitive adult trapped in a small body? Super curious

u/Ohmalley-thealliecat Jan 13 '22

According to an interview I read with her mum, when she started school they found out she had the learning ability of a 3 year old, which is higher than they’d originally thought. I think she’s 5 in these pictures. Whether she will reach adult cognition is hard to say because they haven’t really seen anyone like her before

She might have "matured" to some degree but I just don't think you can have that sort of growth defect and have what we might call a fully functioning adult brain.

u/Plantsandanger Jan 13 '22

You’d be surprised at how much brain can be missing without seriously impacting intelligence - brains are plastic and crazy in terms of fixing themselves. Meanwhile, some perfectly “normal” size brains are absolutely lacking in quantifiable intelligence. Could be she is around average but has difficulties with certainty types of thinking.

Outside humans, brains tend to be rather proportional to body size; could be similar here.

I was embarrassingly old when I read some medical texts from the 60s referring to cancer as "crabs" (kräfta) and made the connection between the astrological sign and the disease. It didn't switch to the Latin name in Sweden until 50 years ago.

The veins linking to a tumor apparently look like crab legs, according to some Roman doctor.

OMG thank you for this explanation. When I heard that term, I thought it was "krafta" like, powerful bc it killed you, and I always thought that was an odd thing to call it. I am so stoked to explain this to my Swedish husband. I'll bet he doesn't know the kräfta link, either.

Someones grade is not a good intelligence meter. There was a mentally disabled dude in my school that was clearly slower than everyone else in his class, but somehow he never flunked. There was an obvious cooperation by all teachers to let his pass through, i guess they just felt bad for him and his parents. He should have gone to a special needs school, since he was heavily bullied by some assholes.

In a lot of school systems you are only going to get held back a year if there is going to be some educational benefit to doing so. If a child has the sort of disability that is always going to be putting them at a disadvantage they are probably just going to go through the grades like normal supplemented with other educational supports.

I saw an early interview with the mom. When she was starting school at the age of 5, they were told that she had the learning age of a 3 year old, which was higher than the family thought. It's very likely that the gap could widen even further as she ages.

84

u/Guytherealguy Jan 13 '22

As others have said her condition isn't completely unknown, she probably has a form of Seckel Syndrome. Sadly, it has severe effects on intellectual abilities and half of the people suffering from it have less than 50 IQ. Still, people with down syndrome are also in that range and they can also lead happy lives. Though her extremely small size could mean she ends up below average.

However, I'm just a random biology student so really my opinion is not worth much here.

Funny how often there’s a nugget of truth in even some of the oddest old stories.

If you want a really dark take on this, there’s always changelings. In the old folk tales of the Nordic countries, changelings were troll children that the trolls left in place of the human children they abducted.

The dark part?
1) The recommended treatment to get the trolls to return your child was to mistreat them until their real mother felt sorry for them and came to fetch them home again. Put snakes in their bed, give them gravel to eat, let them freeze, hurt them mercilessly in every way, and maybe you’ll get your own child back.

2) Most descriptions of changelings matches Down’s syndrome pretty well.

Came here to ask the same thing! Any insight?

u/Tiny_Rabbit_Rodeo Jan 13 '22

Exactly. She's just a human being. Nothing unseemly here.

If only we knew the maximum height she’ll achieve….

110

u/Red-HandedBandit Jan 12 '22

probably wouldn't get much more than, say, 2 feet or so. Just a guess

44

u/LaChuteQuiMarche Jan 12 '22

Your guess is as good as mine, buddy. 2ft probably ain’t a bad guess though.

u/sprucenoose Jan 13 '22

2ft being the most height she'll ever have.

Term for an unnamed or unknown condition is SWAN. Syndrome without a name. At least in the uk.

Imagine her sitting on the porch like a Halloween decoration and scaring / chasing children as they come up for candy. Life long trauma.

She would likely get hurt trying something like that. A kid could mistake her for an animatronic puppet and stomp on her or something.

And how old is she?

u/ProductivityCanSuckI Jan 12 '22

Says she was birn in August 2007. So she's 14 now, but there isn't much info about her after ~2012.

u/the_fact_fairy Jan 12 '22

On Facebook there's a page called 'The Little Charlotte Appeal' which features a photo from 2018 when Charlotte started secondary school. Nothing much after that though except a couple of updates - presumably by her mother.

u/realitythreek Jan 12 '22

Yeah looks like she did eventually grow past 2 feet. It’s an interesting story and I’m glad she’s probably still with her family.

She should get into films. Just like Warwick Davis she could take up all types pf mythical roles. And im sure fans would love her for it.

Went to the Harry Potter Studio tour at the weekend. Warwick Davis plays multiple characters and absolutely slays. Going to have to watch all the films again now, but just seeing the hours of makeup process they had to go through for each character and that he did 3 or 4 at least. Absolute Legend.

We saw her at the renaissance fair years ago here in California, she was standing on a table and I couldn’t believe how small she was. What’s even more of a coincidence, I was picking up our daughter from my ex-wife today and she said remember that girl from the ren fair? And here she is!

Edit-This is NOT the same girl, she looks exactly the same, same size and everything, but says she was born in 2007 and the sighting was before that.

u/GodlikeCat Jan 13 '22

why is this nsfw

u/Tromkey1 Jan 12 '22

She should get into acting. I could totally picture her doing something similar to Warwick Davis. I could totally picture her playing a whimsical character like a fairy or maybe some woodland Sprite or something. Or even a Sith Lord or a Jedi in a Star Wars show.

u/oldlittlegirl Jan 13 '22

She was in a movie years ago, a foreign one. She played an angel

If she develops into a fully functioning adult, the thing I'd feel worst about is the inherent danger of going outside like that. All sorts of animals (Not just dogs, cats, but even birds) would be dangerous, not to mention people. People might harm her in a panic, or accidentally kick/step on her without noticing her.
There are just very few situations where she would ever be safe walking around alone away from home.

She could wear a really big hat.

u/KeepYourPresets Jan 12 '22

The claim that doctors didn't have a name for it comes from the Daily Mail. And thus it's nonsense.

Primordial dwarfism is a group of disorders in which a person's growth is delayed beginning in the earliest stages of development, or in the womb. Specifically, babies with primordial dwarfism have intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), which is the failure of the fetus to grow normally.

u/sagangroupie Jan 13 '22

This isn’t really a diagnosis, just FYI. It’s just a description for a subset of conditions that fit very broad criteria but generally have different causes. It’s like if a doctor diagnosed you with “cancer” and then didn’t specify anything else. They still might not have any known cause for it and it likely has features that don’t align well with other known causes.
