Abstract

Language constitutes one of the most important mainstays in cognitive, social and psychological development of children. However, nowadays an important percentage of children without disabilities present communication disorders such as dyslalia, speech disorders, dysglosia, among many others. Likewise, in developing countries it is difficult to provide personalized rehabilitation services for those children due the lack of personnel, large number of students per classroom or lack of technologies to support activities in the schools or at home. For these reasons, in this paper we present an intelligent system to support the rehabilitation and development language skills in children from 4 to 5 years. Our approach relies on data mining techniques (clustering) and ludic activities. The system was validated with 60 children and 25 students of initial education career. The results are encouraging given that show a high interest for using the application in both side, teachers and children.
