DEXTERIA - FINE MOTOR SKILL DEVELOPMENT is a well-made therapeutic app for kids who need extra help with fine motor skills, letter formation, and skills like finger pinching -- skills that help in many ways, including manipulating mobile device screens. While the exercises aren't chock full of exciting games, cute characters, and rewards, features like fun sound effects, timed tasks, and encouraging tracking of levels completed can help keep kids' attention. This sustained attention is key, because these activities are only fully effective if incorporated into daily practice. With consistent use, Dexteria can be a highly effective tool.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
