This article discusses about the use of role play to develop social and communication skill of autistics children in inclusive primary schools. Therefore, it is necessary to provide interventions that are designed and implemented in a sustainable and well-programmed manner through educational services for children with special needs in general and autism in particular. This research uses qualitative research method to show and analyze data as a basis for designing role play technique in developing social skill for autistics children. Then, experiment approach is used in the form of single subject research using A-B design. The data analysis is done using graphical visual analysis. The role play activities are conducted several meetings in order to develop social skills of interaction and communication. Thus, it is hope that role play can develop and improve the social skills of children with autism in the term of communication skills and interaction with friends, teachers, and all the school members they know. It is suggested that teachers in inclusive schools have to be able to improve the social skills of autistic children through various forms of role play.
