Dexteria - Fine Motor Skill Development

Dexteria - Fine Motor Skill Development

BinaryLabs, Inc.

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.)

Does your child get his b’s and d’s mixed up? How about her p’s and q’s? LetterReflex provides a fun way to help overcome common letter reversals. The first activity, Tilt It, uses kinesthetic learning to teach left from right. The second activity, Flip It, allows them to practice what they learned while honing their letter discrimination skills.

√ Tilt It: Teach Left from Right using Kinesthetic Learning

According to research, a key reason for letter reversals is not knowing left from right, and as a result kids get confused when trying to discriminate between a “b” and a ‘d” or a “p” and a “q”. They’re not quite sure which side the letter loop should go on.

Our Tilt It activity uses kinesthetic learning techniques to help kids map their left side/right side to correct letter formation. They will learn the correct position of letter loops by being challenged to tilt the device in the correct direction to form letters.

Designed for fun as well as education, Tilt It is a maze game that gets progressively more difficult as the learner succeeds at each level.

With practice, they will form an instinctive correlation between letter formation and left side/right side.

√ Flip It: Practice Letter and Word Discrimination

Using arcade game action, Flip It challenges kids to visually discriminate and manipulate letters and words to match the correct orientation. The activity will help hone their visual discrimination skills and further cement their knowledge of correct letter and word formation.

Both activities are designed to be repeatable and engaging, and when used on a regular basis will help address the problem of letter reversals.

Tracking and Progress Reports: The app includes an automatic tracking and reporting feature makes it easy for parents, teachers and therapists to identify time on task, accuracy, and progress. You can email the reports right from the app.

LetterReflex is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Buy it once, and use on all your iOS devices.

App pedigree: LetterReflex is from the creators of Dexteria, the top-ranked, critically acclaimed app that improves fine motor skills.

Features:
•Unique kinesthetic approach to solving letter reversal problem
•Easy to use, fun to play
•Designed to be used in short sessions, repeated over time
•Runs on all your iOS devices
•Randomized game play ensures kids won’t get bored
•Automatically generates usage reports
•Reports can be emailed to parents, teachers, therapists
