Abstract: Alleviation of social inequities and its effect on the children with disabilities has been in the agenda of the Philippine government in concern towards its people. Aspiring spectacular social adaptations, this survey research explores humane associations of children with disabilities in the general education classrooms within the prospective localities. Social skills are believed to show a thriving greater commitment in substantiating bonding in building persistency and humility, and in inculcating hopeful challenges. From the key informants` viewpoints, the social competence of these children with disabilities attending regular classes was attuned with the acquisition and usage of the social skills. The presence of children with disabilities created a unique rapport with the rest of the people inside the regular schools and perceived to change conventional conceptions, attitudes, and practices. Having the opportunities and wider scope of interactions altered their once timid personalities and learnings in the inclusive environment lead to remarkable changes in social competence. It helps them participate in different settings and promotes belongingness essential to dignity and to the exercise of human rights.?Inclusive education is the most effective weapon against self – pity and discriminations.
