The benefits of creating a UTR recording go beyond the simple notion of sending a video bedtime story home. The more a family uses UTR, the more the benefits become apparent, and the impact becomes priceless.
A UTR video is reliable, repeatable, and accessible at all times.
- UTR allows your deployed service member and children to make powerful connections
- UTR helps deployed military personnel parent from a distance
- UTR reassures the children that their parent is safe and thinking of home
- UTR provides support to the at-home caregiver
Benefits for your child
According to survey feedback from participating UTR families, children who view United Through Reading videos from their service member express less anxiety during the deployment, have an increased interest in literacy, and experience an improved reintegration when the service member returns.
