This article outlines the potential of virtual training environments in the rehabilitation of adults and elderly people with learning disabilities. Before such virtual training environments are developed, tutoring roles for mentors working with adults and elderly people must be investigated. This is because this group of people has far less expectation of and experience with computers than younger people with learning disabilities, for whom virtual training environments have already proved effective. Effective tutoring strategies employed, together with appropriate and well-designed virtual training environments, will be the outcomes of two methods suggested in this article.
