© 2015 IEEE. Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) is an area focused in the rehabilitation of people suffering from different kinds of disorders and disabilities related with language and communication. According to latest estimates of theWorld Health Organization, the most of countries do not have appropriate structures to provide healthcare and rehabilitation services these persons. On those grounds, this paper presents a robotic assistant with the aim to help Speech and Language Pathologists (SLP) during the therapy activities. This approach is based on an integrative environment that relies on mobile ICT tools, an expert system, a knowledge layer and standardized vocabularies. This proposal has been tested on 65 children suffering from different kinds of disabilities, and the achieved results are encouraging.
