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.)

"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
Good app for pre warm ups working with students who have handwriting difficulties as well as develop manipulation skills. I'm an OT and cannot wait to try this on my students. Have tried this on my 5 year old and loves it!
I am an OT that uses this app with students on my caseload. I like how the writing program let's a student know when they are forming a letter incorrectly. This has been helpful to several students of mine. I use other therapy tools as well so I have not had my students get bored with writing program. Pinching program challenging for students until they get the feel for it. Variety would be nice instead of just crabs. Would like ease in tracking progress of multiple students. Overall helpful therapy tool.
So sad it won’t work on the new Apple software
As an OT this was my favorite app. But now the Write It game simply doesn’t work. The letters will not trace. I have deleted and the reinstalled the app 3 times. I am disappointed because it was a great motivator for teaching the HWT letter and number formation.
