Dexteria Visual Motor Integration App

Binary Labs, creator of apps for Occupational Therapists has developed a new app, Dexteria Visual Motor Integration App (3.99; iPad/iPhone). Developed for 4-6 year olds, Dexteria VMI provides visual matching, figure ground, visual discrimination and visual memory tasks.

The app provides two modes, a “create this”, requiring reproduction and “match this” for visual memory.

All tasks require visual discrimination of size, shape and color.

Each mode has 10 levels of increasing difficulty. Levels 5 and above provide an additional challenge of completing the task from visual memory.

The match and create activities both track time and accuracy of responses.  Scores are tracked and compared .

Summary: Dexteria VMI app provides visual motor discrimination and visual memory activities on the iPad and iPhone. The app is intuitive and easy to use. A progressive level of difficulty is present in each mode of the app and reporting to monitor user skill development. I would like to see the levels of each of the modes expanded  with additional activities offered for each of the variables included (e.g. one, two, then three matching  shapes).

Dexteria VMI provides visual discrimination and visual memory activities and monitoring activities for primary aged students and assists therapists with collecting student performance data. I will look forward to trialing this app with students  when school starts this fall!

More for your OT mTool Kit.

Thank you to Binary Labs  for providing the  app for review!
