The objective of the project is to develop a web application and a mobile application so that it allows people with intellectual disabilities to improve their communication and language skills. The methodology used for the development of this project was incremental iterative development in combination with user experience and prototyping, the union of these is useful to validate the application requirements and obtain constant feedback at each step gives in the development of the application. Usability and satisfaction surveys conducted to evaluate prototypes of the application show that therapists have a quick understanding of the functionality and navigability of the application and agree with the design, information, and difficulty of the game levels to meet with his goal of teaching grammatical structures with adjectives. The developed application is easy to use for INSFIDIM therapists and students, therapists comment that the application will be of great help in the work they do with students to develop their comprehensive and expressive language.
