What will they need to keep from freaking out when they are no longer in an 5 by 8 foot room.

It would be ideal is they could start gradually. A lot depends on what they were deprived of - sight? Daylight? Sound? Music?

The social aspects will be the hardest, I would guess. No "coming out" parties until The person is ready. Slow and sure with lots of support, I would think.

they were deprived of all contact with people...later on they had tv and radio but no human contact. Food was shoved thru the door to their room. If they got outside they could only see they sky looking up...no other things like trees, birds, houses....and only for an hour several times a week - alone.
