Several authors such as Piaget, suggest that sensory and motor experiences are considered the base of intellectual functioning during the first two years of a person's life. In this line, the fine and gross motor skills are tightly related with the cognitive development of a child. For these reasons, in this paper, we present an interactive system aimed at supporting exercises and activities for both rehabilitation and development of motor skills in children with disabilities. Our proposal relies on a Kinect device and an expert system that provides a guide of activities that must be carried out by a child according to his/her profile. We have tested the system in two stages, one to determine how well the expert system provides suggestions on the base of one first level of granularity: Areas and general interactive activities configuration. Moreover, in the second stage, we worked in real therapy sessions with six children with different types of disabilities. The results show high levels of motivation by children side, and 90% of precision in the generation of therapy plans.
