Having Trouble Viewing the Videos?
Chances are the video window is not showing up on your computer monitor because YouTube access has been blocked on your network. To help ensure playback quality, all videos are housed on our YouTube Channel, ReadingRecoveryCNA.

To avoid this problem and provide the best quality across the widest range of operating systems and platforms, we've converted the videos into MPEG-4 files. Please do not try to view the videos without first downloading and saving them to your computer.

2. From the dropdown window, select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" to save the video file to your computer.
