Today, part of the world's population has an impairment in speaking or being able to
communicate normally in their daily lives. In addition, a large percentage of those
affected are children. Technology and computers play an important role in these types
of problems that many people suffer from. Therefore, the use of speech therapy
applications or systems helps the child to reduce treatment time. The research aims to
identify the best computer tools and technologies and how they influence the
evolution of speech therapy for children with speech disorders or speech problems.
For the research, a bibliographic review was conducted in different databases such as
IEEE Xplore, Scopus, Google Scholar and ScienceDirect where 49 scientific articles
were collected from 2005-2020. Likewise, key words were used to carry out a search
corresponding to our topic of study, thanks to which we were able to collect the
necessary amount of information to nourish the question posed. Finally, it was
demonstrated that the use of mobile applications with a videogame-related subject
matter is able to maintain the infant's active practice of speech therapy, reducing its
treatment by up to half the time.
