View the activity log to keep track of scores and see improvement. This allows the therapist to measure progress throughout intervention and allows the child to see their overall percentage score.
The therapist can choose to share the results with a friend, clear the best times, request feedback from Dexteria Jr., or disable the camera if the child does not want their picture taken.
The therapist can choose to share the child's results with a parent or teacher. This is helpful because it allows them to compare the scores attained at home to the scores attained in therapy.
The therapist can email the child's activity log to "email@example.com" to get an outsider's opinion of how the child is doing.
This allows the therapist to save the results of all of their clients and access them at any time. This helps the therapist to stay organized and compare results with children of similar ages.
