The development of children's ability to adapt varies, this is also related to the character and perception of children. Children's perceptions develop in line with their social experiences that are obtained in a certain period of time. The acquisition of simple social skills has begun to be mastered by children in general in childhood, and more complex skills increase as they get older. People around children become "role models" for the development of a number of children's social skills such as interacting skills, establishing friendships, communication and independence. However for children with special needs, often simple social skills must be obtained with effort and relatively long time. This is exacerbated if the child's opportunity to practice is lacking due to lack of interaction. Descriptive qualitative research with the subjects of students with special needs consisting of 3 elementary school and 2 kindergarten in Tangerang. The result is that students can develop a number of social skills after taking education in inclusive schools. Based on the findings obtained how the role of schools in developing social skills is to make routine activities, provide guidance, positive attitude and give examples. The attitude shown by the school as an institution, and commitment will have an impact on the growth of social abilities.
