What is "finger dexterity?"

Finger dexterity skills are how well someone can use their fingers to do tasks. Kids with autism might have trouble with these skills. Finger dexterity is important for using AAC devices, which can help neurodivergent kids who have trouble speaking communicate with others. Kids need to touch or push buttons on the device to make words and sentences. If they can use their fingers well, they can use the device better.

Why is building finger dexterity important?

Finger dexterity exercises evaluate the capability of the muscles in the hand as well as the person’s fine motor skills for the purpose of performing tasks that involve placing, turning, and picking up objects. The development of finger dexterity is very important as without it, doing daily tasks, like grooming, becomes very difficult. Having good dexterity skills also makes it easier for kids to use AAC devices and have better communication.

What's the science?

Our balloons app implements strategies occupational therapists use every day to help kids practice finger dexterity. We give parents control over how fast the balloons travel & how big they are so that parents and therapists can track their progress. Goally's balloons app also includes visual and audio stimulation while playing.

Can I involve my teacher or therapist?

Yup! You can add unlimited care team members to your kiddo's account.

What if my kid doesn't like it?

No problem - there are no contracts or risk with Goally's monthly plan. If you or your kiddo doesn't like it, just let us know and we will cancel your subscription. If it's just the balloon app they don't like, don't worry- we have other dexterity-building games to keep them engaged (like Graffiti Street!

Parents & Pros Goally's purple heart. Goally

"My little lady is loving the Goally. It makes morning and night routines go smooth and gives me piece of mind that she can use it to talk with me or anyone else."

—Allyne S.

"My son started talking! He was non verbal when we ordered and with the help of his Goally and his speech therapist he had now been talking for 6 months. He no longer utilizes the Goally since he can verbally tell us what he needs and we no longer need the visual schedules anymore. He has made so much progress since we ordered it!"

—Anon.

"We’ve only had our device two days and it has already changed our lives. My autistic 3 year old just got points for Being Kind because he hugged his brother. He had not once acknowledged his brother till today and he’s 4 months old."

—Anon.

"My ADHD-Anxiety 10 yo LOVES his Goally [...]. We use it to help keep him on task. We create routines together, test them together, make adjustments to them based on his feedback & let him determine the rewards store for things that are meaningful to him. Keeping him involved in the set-up has provided him a sense of power & ownership for his responsibilities."

—Candace J.

"We got our Goally on Monday and I was able to set everything up pretty quickly. And guess what, [my son] is obsessed with it!!! It has already helped the morning routine tremendously. He’s getting up without me when the Goally goes off and he’s very eager to get everything done in the allotted time. This whole week we have been leaving for school at the perfect time."

—Jennifer C.
