From the makers of award-winning Dexteria, Dexteria Jr. Lite is a set of hand and finger exercises to develop fine motor skills and handwriting readiness. The activities (one activity is included with this free version of the app, and the other two are available via in-app purchase) are specially designed for kids age 2-6. Happy characters, sprite animations, music, and sound effects all add up to a fun and engaging experience for toddlers and preschool-aged children.
Dexteria Jr.'s unique hand and finger activities take full advantage of the iPad's multi-touch interface to help build strength, control, and dexterity.
For best 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. We do not receive or collect the tracking data.
Multi-user tracking is available as an in-app purchase. (Note to Volume Purchase Program customers: Consider buying Dexteria Jr. VPP instead. It includes multi-user tracking and you will pay a lower net cost than if you buy Dexteria Jr. and upgrade each copy via the in-app purchase. Just search "Dexteria Jr. VPP" in the app store.)

Ratings and Reviews
Had to buy the real one twice
I already bought the full dexteria app a couple years ago for my grandson on my other iPad. But when I tried getting it on this iPad I have to pay for it twice. I am logged in to the same account, but it says I still have to pay. It’s a really great app, but I didn’t want to pay for it twice.
Developer Response ,
