Education is an essential stage of children lives. Children with special needs (deaf and hard hearing) may encounter challenges and need more assistant in their education journey. Recent technology could be utilized to improve the deaf and hard hearing children learning experience. For these reasons, this paper proposed “Mushir” an Arabic application that targets deaf and hard of hearing children from four to seven years old. ""Mushir"" aims to increase child knowledge and enthusiasm for learning letters, numbers, shapes, and colors in Arabic sign language. In addition, the child can examine the knowledge he achieves by playing two different games. The first game is a multiple-choices questions. The second game utilized image processing technology by applying real-time processing for the camera senses. In this game the child will be asked to open the camera and indicate a movement of his/her hand in sign language.
