Late Bloomers

  1. 1. Late Bloomers In The Garden Of Life Late Bloomers Are Especially Beautiful
  2. 2. Introduction • A late bloomer is a person whose talents or capabilities are not visible to others until later than usual. • The term is used metaphorically to describe a child or adolescent who develops slower than others in their age group, but eventually catches up and in some cases overtakes their peers, or an adult whose talent or genius in a particular field only appears later in life than is normal – in some cases only in old age.
  3. 3. Late Bloomers
  4. 4. Late Bloomers Thomas Edison People often say Edison was a genius. He answered, "Genius is hard work, stick-to-it-iveness, and common sense.” As a boy, went to school only a short time. He did so poorly that his mother, a former teacher, taught her son at home.
  5. 5. After Thomas Edison’s school teacher called him addled or mentally ill in a letter, Edison’s mother hid the letter from the young inventor and homeschooled him so that Edison could reach his full potential.
  6. 6. Introduction • A late bloomer is a person who appeared to be of average ability throughout childhood and often into adulthood. • Throughout early school years, the grades of the late bloomer are mediocre. The late bloomer does not stand out in other ways either. • He doesn't demonstrate any particular talents or abilities in academics or any of the arts. • The late bloomer who goes to college may not stand out or excel there, at least not for the first couple of years

  8. 8. Einstein slow development was combined with a cheeky rebelliousness toward authority, which led one schoolmaster to send him packing and another to declare that he would never amount to much Einstein was slow in learning how to talk. “My parents were so worried,” he later recalled, “that they consulted a doctor.” Even after he had begun using words, sometime after the age of 2, he developed a quirk that prompted the family maid to dub him “der Depperte,” the dopey one. Whenever he had something to say, he would try it out on himself, whispering it softly until it sounded good enough to pronounce aloud.
  9. 9. Late Bloomers
  10. 10. Introduction • At some point, however, the late bloomer begins to do well. • If in college, he will go from C average grades to straight As. • If at work, the late bloomer will go from a barely noticed employee to a star employee. • The transformation is not due to overnight magic, however. • Instead, it can be triggered by some event that happens one day or in a specific period of time.

  12. 12. Late Bloomers
  13. 13. Introduction • A mediocre student might attend college, and as he takes courses in different subject areas, he takes one that sparks his interest. • It could be one that he never had the opportunity to study in high school or one that covers a topic in more depth than it was covered in high school. It is the interest that leads the student to excel. • At work, it might be a new project that triggers a person's interest. It may even be an opportunity to compete that had been missing before.

  16. 16. The Motivation of a Late Bloomer • Late bloomers do not suddenly become smart or talented. They are most likely intrinsically motivated, which means that they are internally motivated. • Their motivation comes from within them. They are not motivated by grades or praise, which are external rewards. • Their reward comes from the pleasure of learning or achieving. A late bloomer "blooms" when he finds something that interests him enough for him to pursue that interest.
  17. 17. The Motivation of a Late Bloomer
  18. 18. The Motivation of a Late Bloomer • Because discovering a passionate interest can motivate a child to work hard and excel, it's a good idea to introduce your child to many different topics and activities. • This doesn't mean that you want to enroll your child in so many activities that he has no time for himself. • It just means that you want to provide opportunities for your child to be aware of different subjects.
  19. 19. The Motivation of a Late Bloomer
  20. 20. The Motivation of a Late Bloomer • Ideally, all children would be challenged in school, but that doesn't always happen. • If your child is not doing well in school, take heart. • She may be a late bloomer. • You might even be able to help her bloom.

  23. 23. Late Bloomer • Children who experience developmental delays in speech or in physical or social development are also referred to as late bloomers. • These would include children who experience late-onset puberty or children who have a disability such as ADHD or dyslexia. • Any child who lags behind in development but who eventually catches up is a late bloomer.

  26. 26. Late Bloomer • "Late Bloomer" is commonly used to refer to young children who develop skills such as language, reading, or social interaction later than others of their age.
  27. 27. Late Bloomer • There are many theories of the way in which children develop, proposed by authorities such as Urie Bronfenbrenner, Jerome Bruner, Erik Erikson, Jerome Kagan, Lawrence Kohlberg, Jean Piaget, and Lev Vygotsky.

  35. 35. Late Bloomer • Although they disagree about how stages of development should be defined, and about the primary influences on development, they agree that a child's development can be measured as a predictable series of advances in physical, intellectual and social skills which almost always occur in the same sequence, although the rate may vary from one child to another.
  36. 36. Late Bloomer • When a child falls behind their peers at some stage of development, their teacher may perceive that the child is "backward". • There is strong evidence that this perception may become self-fulfilling: although the child catches up, the teacher may continue to rate their performance poorly, imposing a long- term handicap.

  39. 39. Late Bloomer • Thomas Edison's mind often wandered and his teacher was overheard calling him "addled." This ended Edison's three months of official schooling. • His mother then home schooled him. • Edison may have had some form of Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which the American Psychiatric Institute says affects about 3 – 5% of children

  46. 46. Late Bloomer • Neuroscientist Steven Pinker postulates that a certain form of language delay may in fact be associated with exceptional and innate- analytical prowess in some individuals.
  47. 47. Late Bloomer • Dyslexia is a learning disability that may affect 3–10% of children. • It is thought to be the result of a genetically inherited neurological difference from "normal" children, and has been diagnosed in people of all levels of intelligence. • Studies indicate that 20% to 35% of U.S. and British entrepreneurs have the condition: by definition, late bloomers.
  48. 48. Dyslexia is a learning disability that may affect 3–10% of children
  49. 49. Late Bloomer • Researchers theorise that dyslexic entrepreneurs may attain success by delegating responsibilities and excelling at verbal communication. • Richard Branson, known for his Virgin brand of over 360 companies is a notable example, as is Charles R. Schwab the founder and CEO of the Charles Schwab Corporation. • Pablo Picasso, Tom Cruise, and Whoopi Goldberg are other examples of dyslexics, considered "slow" as children.

  51. 51. Late Bloomer • The autism spectrum of psychological conditions affects about 0.6% of children, characterized by widespread abnormalities of social interactions and communication, severely- restricted interests, and highly-repetitive behaviour. • Notable individuals with autism spectrum disorders include Tim Page, a Pulitzer Prize- winning critic and author and Vernon L. Smith, a Nobel Laureate in economics.

  53. 53. Adolescents • During adolescence a child goes through physical and mental changes that lead to them becoming an adult. • Adolescence is usually considered to start with the first stages of puberty and to continue until physical growth is complete, although the World Health Organization defines adolescence simply as the period between ages 10 and 20
  54. 54. Adolescents • "Late bloomer" can refer to children who suffer from delayed puberty, who are late in reaching their full height. • W. B. Yeats (age 30), Pierre Trudeau (age at least 28), Mark Twain (age 34), and Johann von Goethe (age 39) are all "late bloomers" in this last sense.
  55. 55. Poetic Late Bloomer William Butler Yeats
  56. 56. Adults • A late blooming adult is a person who does not discover their talents and abilities until later than normally expected. • In certain cases retirement may lead to this discovery.

  58. 58. Adults • Although there is a common perception that intellectual development peaks in a young adult and then slowly declines with increasing age, this may be simplistic. • Although the ability to form new memories and concepts may indeed diminish, the older person has the advantage of accumulated knowledge, associations between concepts, and mental techniques that may give them an advantage in some fields.

As fate would have it, a major interstate was built, which diverted traffic away from the road his restaurant was on.
  76. 76. Colonial Sanders and KFC
  77. 77. Colonial Sanders and KFC • So, at age 65, the restaurant was bankrupt. • Now retired from his jobs, he cashed his first ever Social Security check and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) was born. He was so confident in his ability to fry chicken that he used the last money he had in the world and invested it in his restaurant. • Less than 10 years later, Sanders had more than 600 Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises in the U.S. and Canada. • Today, more than 12 million people eat at KFC each day in 109 countries.

  110. 110. Terminology • Developmental Psychology • Developmental psychology is the scientific study of how and why human beings change over the course of their life. • Developmental psychologists aim to explain how thinking, feeling, and behaviours change throughout life. • This field examines change across three major dimensions: physical development, cognitive development, and socio-emotional development.
  111. 111. Developmental Psychology
  112. 112. ADHD • ADHD • ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is a medical condition. • A person with ADHD has differences in brain development and brain activity that affect attention, the ability to sit still, and self-control. • ADHD can affect a child at school, at home, and in friendships
  113. 113. ADHD
  114. 114. Child Development • Child development entails the biological, psychological and emotional changes that occur in human beings between birth and the conclusion of adolescence, as the individual progresses from dependency to increasing autonomy. • It is a continuous process with a predictable sequence, yet having a unique course for every child. • It does not progress at the same rate and each stage is affected by the preceding developmental experiences
  115. 115. Child Development
  116. 116. Puer Aeternus • Puer aeternus (sometimes shortened to puer), Latin for "eternal boy", in mythology is a child-god who is forever young. • In psychology it is an older person whose emotional life has remained at an adolescent level, also known as Peter Pan syndrome.
  117. 117. Puer Aeternus
  118. 118. Puer Aeternus • The puer typically leads a provisional life due to the fear of being caught in a situation from which it might not be possible to escape. • He or she covets independence and freedom, opposes boundaries and limits, and tends to find any restriction intolerable
  119. 119. Peter Pan Syndrome • Peter Pan syndrome is an inability to grow up or to engage in behaviour usually associated with adulthood. • The term comes from the fictional children's character Peter Pan, who never ages. • The concept gained popularity through Dr. Dan Kiley (psychoanalyst) in his book • The Peter Pan Syndrome: Men Who Have Never Grown Up first published in 1983.
  120. 120. Peter Pan Syndrome
  121. 121. Peter Pan Syndrome • A prominent example of a celebrity with Peter Pan syndrome was Michael Jackson, who said, "I am Peter Pan in my heart." • Jackson named the 2,700-acre Los Olivos, California property, where he lived from 1988 to 2005, Neverland Ranch after Neverland, the fantasy island on which Peter Pan lives. • He said that it was his way of claiming a childhood he never had, having started early as a performing artist with his family

  123. 123. Pygmalion Effect • The Pygmalion effect, or Rosenthal effect, is the phenomenon whereby others' expectations of a target person affect the target person's performance. • The effect is named after the Greek myth of Pygmalion, a sculptor who fell in love with a statue he had carved. • Rosenthal and Jacobson, in their book, applied the idea to teachers' expectations of their students affecting the students' performance, a view that has been undermined by subsequent research

  126. 126. The Ugly Duckling • "The Ugly Duckling“ is a literary fairy tale by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875). • The story tells of a homely little bird born in a barnyard who suffers abuse from the others around him until, much to his delight (and to the surprise of others), he matures into a beautiful swan, the most beautiful bird of all. • The story is beloved around the world as a tale about personal transformation for the better
  127. 127. The Ugly Duckling
  128. 128. Conclusion • A late bloomer is a person who fulfills their potential later than expected; they often have talents that aren’t visible to others initially. The key word here is expected. • And they fulfill their potential frequently in novel and unexpected ways, surprising even those closest to them. • They are not attempting to satisfy, with gritted teeth, the expectations of their parents or society, a false path that leads to burnout and brittleness, or even to depression and illness.
  129. 129. Conclusion
  130. 130. Conclusion • As Oprah Winfrey says, “Everyone has a supreme destiny.” • Late bloomers are those who find their supreme destiny on their own schedule, in their own way
  131. 131. “Everyone has a supreme destiny.”
  132. 132. Conclusion • Up to now, little formal research has been done on late bloomers. • Much of academia seems to have ignored this particular aspect of human development, except in rare cases in which it is connected to a developmental disorder. • In other words, late blooming is usually explored through the lens of dysfunction or as an abnormality. • Even in academic research, the late bloomer gets little respect.
  133. 133. Late Bloomers
  134. 134. Conclusion • Think about the starting point of a late bloomer. In all probability, his or her talents and passions were overlooked by culture and the educational system that measures for a cruelly narrow range of skills. • It closed off the person’s paths of discovery and encouragement and potential. • It did not open the doors to a successful future for them because it didn’t even see them.
  135. 135. Think about the starting point of a late bloomer. In all probability, his or her talents and passions were overlooked by culture and the educational system
  136. 136. Conclusion • So it makes little sense for the late bloomer to climb back aboard the early bloomer conveyor belt with renewed determination, hardened resolve, and more training and college debt. The conveyor belt is going in only one direction. • What potential late bloomers have to do is to get off the conveyor belt and find a new path of discovery.
