The aim of this paper deals with the inclusion of computer vision and immersive virtual reality as a tool to support the intervention of students with Asperger syndrome. We performed a study and analysis of previous research and literature about the topic to conclude with a list of contributions. These contributions permit to improve the learning of the students with Asperger syndrome. According to the educational needs and cognitive style, the use of immersive virtual reality can allow these students learn more through instructions and visual aids. As a consequence this technology can structure the environment and the learning workspace to become predictable and to anticipate changes in learning. Furthermore, the system can propose alternatives. Additionally, a computer vision is included to capture information about the student. Within this information we can mention: the direction of the eye view, facial expressions or body posture. This information allows the system to obtain information about the student behavior and to adapt the learning process automatically.
