The current direction for special needs education in Egypt is toward the inclusion of these students in regular classrooms. Virtual reality (VR) provides immersion, visualization, engagement and interactivity that can be an efficient learning tool for deaf and hearing impaired students and also facilitates the inclusion of these students in regular classrooms. In this paper, a low cost virtual reality environment is developed to train deaf and hearing impaired students on computer maintenance skills. IT and computer training is a vital for students with special needs, namely deaf and hearing impaired students as successful employment in the future will depend a great deal on their computer skills and will also allow them to fully participate in the digital age. The results of this study clearly indicated significant improved performance of deaf and hearing impaired students in computer maintenance skills after the exposure to the VR environment.
