Resumen

Nowadays, the Speech and Language Pathologists (SPLs) face several difficulties while they provide the daily screening, assessment, monitoring, and rehabilitation services to People with Communication Disorders (PWCD). These problems arise from different grounds such as lack of supporting personnel, the large number of patients that require attention, the weakness of health care structures, and the many activities that must be carried out: report generation, planning of therapy intervention, patients' monitoring, etc. We present a mobile ecosystem with the purpose of helping SLPs during some of the most relevant activities of Speech-Language Therapy (SLT): initial screening on six speech-language areas (linguistic formulation, hearing, expressive language and articulation, receptive language, and oral structure and function), designing therapy plans, and conducting therapy activities. In order to analyze the reliability of our proposal we have conducted some tests with 32 children suffering from disabilities, and the results shown an important reduction in the time required to conduct the initial screening, report generation, and conducting therapy activities for articulation.
