1. Below average IQ level (70-75) limits social interaction as the person may not understand difficult words, jokes, motives/ motivation of others

2. Inability to cope with everyday problems- putting on clothes, eating, going to toilet, so on. These problems might be serious for the concerned person, taking up a lot of time and limiting contact time and opportunities.

3.Age above 18 makes the person less adaptable, less able o learn and also there are additional adolescence problems which the person is unaware of, but others notice.

Strategies include :

2. A socially responsible and helpful student as a chaperon. Parents might also come to classes to support and encourage the child.

3. Practicing techniques to deal with common problems listed in 2 above with parental involvement and support
