Infant Swim Resource

Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) is a nationally recognized aquatic self-rescue and swimming program developed in 1996 and continuously improved by the behavioral psychologist, Dr. Harvey Barnett. Lessons emphasize developmentally-appropriate instruction, health issues and considerations, ongoing program evaluations, and parent education.

Infants 6-12 months learn to hold their breath underwater, roll onto their back and float unassisted.

Infants over 1 year learn the following sequence: how to hold their breath underwater: swim with their head down: roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe: roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool and can crawl out or be rescued by an adult.

Individually tailored lessons are one-on-one, for 10 minutes, 5 days a week, for 4 to 6 weeks of instruction for children ages 6 months to 3 years.
