Furthermore, using multi-step clustering sampling, 52 ordinary students were selected. The data for the presented investigation were collected based on Connor and Davidson’s questionnaire and Collins and Reid’s attachment one. 
Results: The collected data were analyzed through ANOVA, Bonferroni and T-test. Results (P<0.05) indicated that there is a difference between the three aforementioned sample people. Also, the difference between the average of deaf-ordinary and blind-ordinary was of no significance. However, it was signed for blind-deaf.
