Children with PWS have varying degrees of cognitive and intellectual ability. Most have mild to moderate learning disabilities, but there are some who have an IQ of over 70 (reaching 100 or more in a few cases) and some who have severe learning disabilities. The emotional and social immaturity which is a characteristic of PWS usually means that most children will struggle to function at the expected level for their IQ, particularly as they become older.
Depending on individual ability, they may attend all types of educational schooling, including in some instances, residential schools.
