Summary/Abstract: Starting from the premise that academic and professional success is based mainly on the development of social competences, we are proposingto find out whether, as a result of the existence of a sensory and intellectual disability, can we talk about the different development of social skills? We seek an answer to this question by carrying out a research on a group of 153 children with sensory and intellectual disabilities aged between 9 and 15, coming from four special schools in Timisoara. We set ourselves as a general objective of research: identifying possible statistically significant differences that arise between the level of development of social skills in children with intellectual disability compared to visually impaired children and those with hearing disability.Analysing and interpreting the results confirms the two hypotheses formulated.
