Abstract

Character education in the learning process for students with Special Needs (SN) in inclusive schools whose implementation is still unclear. Character education which ideal has given to the students with SN in the learning process must be adjusted to the needs and ability of the children but in reality, it delivered with a classical/uniform approach for all students. The problems are any character problems of students with SN students in inclusive schools, how is the implementation of character education in the learning process, and the solution of the problem of students with SN in inclusive schools? The results of the research were that there are students with SN who have character problems in seven inclusive elementary schools in Surakarta, all schools uniformed the character-education to all of the students, and the solution is applying Behavioral Skill Training (BST) and building strong home-school partnerships to increase the character of students with SN.
Pendidikan karakter dalam proses pembelajaran untuk siswa berkebutuhan khusus di sekolah inklusif yang implementasinya masih belum jelas. Pendidikan karakter yang ideal diberikan kepada siswa berkebutuhan khusus dalam proses pembelajaran harus disesuaikan dengan kebutuhan dan kemampuan anak-anak tetapi pada kenyataannya itu disampaikan dengan pendekatan klasik/seragam untuk semua siswa. Masalahnya adalah masalah karakter siswa berkebutuhan khusus di sekolah inklusif, bagaimana penerapan pendidikan karakter dalam proses pembelajaran untuk siswa berkebutuhan khusus di sekolah inklusif Surakarta, dan bagaimana solusi untuk mengatasi permasalahan karakter siswa berkebutuhan khusus di sekolah inklusif? Hasil penelitian adalah bahwa ada siswa berkebutuhan khusus yang memiliki masalah karakter di 7 sekolah dasar inklusif di Surakarta dan semua sekolah menyamakan penanaman pendidikan karakter untuk semua siswa, dan perlunya pelatihan perilaku yang berkarakter seperti pelatihan keterampilan perilaku atau Behavioral Skill Training (BST) dan perlunya membangun kemitraan sekolah-rumah yang kuat untuk meningkatkan karakter pada siswa berkebutuhan khusus.
