Dexteria turns your iOS device into a therapeutic tool that improves fine motor skills and handwriting readiness in children and adults.
Dexteria’s unique hand and finger activities take full advantage of the iOS multi-touch screen to help build strength, control, and dexterity. The app's efficacy is supported by independent research studies, including a 2016 study by Huntington University published in the Journal of Hand Therapy.
• Increases coordination and motor control in the hands and fingers
• Works for kids and adults
• Automatically creates performance and usage reports that can be emailed
• Speeds recovery from injuries and stroke
• Designed in consultation with Occupational Therapists
• Turns the iPad into a therapeutic tool
For best therapeutic results the exercises should be done on a regular basis in short sessions. The exercises are designed to be repeatable and engaging.
The automatic tracking and reporting feature makes it easy for parents, teachers and occupational therapists to identify time on task and progress. You can email the progress reports right from the app itself.
Multi-user tracking is available as an in-app purchase. (Note to Volume Purchase Program customers: Consider buying Dexteria VPP instead. It includes multi-user tracking and you will pay a lower net cost than if you buy Dexteria and upgrade each copy via the in-app purchase. Just search "Dexteria VPP" in the app store.)

Editor's Choice Award from Children's Technology Review
"Outstanding app and I highly recommend it. Children are very motivated to use it. I’m a Pediatric Occupational Therapist and I use it to work on fine motor integration, fine motor precision, hand exercises, handwriting, writing speed, etc." - Authentic app store review

Ratings and Reviews
I have recently had a stroke and dexterity has been part of my therapy to work at getting my fine motor skills to return
Excellent app until iOS5: crashes non stop.
I really loved this app and used it a lot with my kids for fine motor skills development. Really outstanding. Then iOS5 came out and this app crashes between 20 seconds and 2 minutes uf use, on the finger tapping part. I waited at first, as iOS5 was new, to give time to the Devs to fix it. We are now in February 2012, still no progress: I have to rate it badly because whatever good it has, you canèt use it. Save yourself 5$ until it has been iOS5 fixed...
I bought this app for two reasons- I like the idea of a game where a child can work on fine motor on the go, and it says it can be used in French for my francophone clients. The games are cute, but the writing is hard to do without bringing down the nightshade is OS5. The Language translations are horrible- you must have your phone in French via utilities to use it (why no option to just use the app in French?) and while the menus and directions have been translated- the actual games haven't. Ie: when a child writes a number, it's spoken in English despite the fact that the phone is set to French. How confusing is that? For a 5$ app I expected much better.
