Abstract

According to statistics published by the Ecuadorian Ministry of Education until 2019, the education system welcomes 31,634 children and adolescents living with some type of disability; In addition, according to data from the Ecuadorian National Council for Equal Disabilities (CONADIS), 458,505 people with some degree of physical, intellectual, hearing, visual or psychosocial disabilities live in our country. With the analysis of the aforementioned data, the paper below explains the creation of an intelligent educational platform that will allow teachers and parents to improve their skills in the teaching-learning process by applying an intelligent tutoring system, that will support daily activities at school and at home, always thinking about adequate inclusion of all students in the classroom, not forgetting the support of a multidisciplinary team of experts who will provide through the system certain diagnoses and their solution. The results show excellent levels of acceptance by teachers, parents, and experts of multidisciplinary team.
