The Robotic Support Assistant for Speech and Language Therapy -SPELTRA originally used exercises, activities, and interactive games with each patient that provided control and progress in their speech and language therapy, and then implemented activities that help children with autism spectrum disorders-ASD and changed its appearance from platform to rectangular bear. It is proposed to optimize its hardware and software by increasing its therapies, improving its structure, material, electromechanical components, the adhesion of sensors capable of measuring the efficiency of recreational or therapeutic activities, and among other improvements, with what we would achieve extend their therapeutic support to people with special needs, for example, infants with early stimulation or collectively, at school; to identify Special Educational Needs-SEN with activities and exercises assessing everyone; at the same time, identifying the capacities and deficiencies of each of the students; monitors their evolution and reports on their condition and progress, which would guide teachers to inclusive teaching indicating the collective activity to be applied; helping to improve, develop and overcome the daily learning challenges of each child with or without SEN.
