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 did not turn off the multi gestures and the app works just fine.
Thank you so much. My 5yr old's hand writing was messy as he had no strength in his fingers to grip his pen. Since using this app it has improved 80%. He has so much control in his fingers it is amazing he no longer just drops things he is holding in his hands. My 3yr daughter has also started using it. Fantastic! Everything has improved, cutting, folding, pasting, painting etc..
What a wonderful, useful, helpful app! It is challenging for people of all ages and I can see improvement in my daughters fine motor skills after only a short time. I highly recommend this app to anyone who wants to improve fine motor skills and get some "brain training" at the same time! Oh and it is fun, and kids are learning at the same time... Can't ask for more than that!! Kylie VDH
