This study aims to find out the distribution of social developmental and adaptation skills of children with mental disabilities regarding different variables and it also reveals whether or not the social skills of children with mental disabilities differ according to their parental characteristics. In order for children with mental disabilities to be active members of the society, it is of utmost importance to be sensitive to the social skills education carried out at schools and make the families conscious of the areas related to these special children's development and education.
