Dexteria is a set of therapeutic hand exercises (not games) to improve fine motor skills and handwriting readiness in children and adults. Dexteria’s unique hand and finger activities take full advantage of the multi-touch interface to help build strength, control, and dexterity.
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.
Dexteria VPP includes multi-user tracking.

Ratings and Reviews
We initially tested out the regular Dexteria app. When it was time to get our own, we got the multi-user as I have 3 kids that were interested in using it previously. I have one child on the autism spectrum. This app is awesome! Until we first tried it, I didn't realize my 9yo couldn't make a pinching motion like that. Now he can pinch very well, after just a few months of using it. We'll be breaking him in on the Tap-It next, to work more on his fine motor. The 6yo also enjoys the crab pinch and attempts Tap-It and it's really improved his finger dexterity as well. The 4yo is loving the letters and while it's been frustrating at first with the sensitivity, it has helped her increase her accuracy and she hardly ever gets the line out of bounds now. She also loves the crabs! :) I'm hoping for a cursive version of the alphabet one sometime and will make that suggestion!
Excellent as far as it goes.
Very unique APP for fine motor finger development. Great to have multi-user reports. For the ABC tracing it would be great to have a final step where the child can independently draw the letter along with a report on letter accuracy. Would be great to have a drawing section for lines and shapes! Keep on developing the program, great work!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
