The idea behind Infant Swimming Resource was born in 1966 when its founder, Harvey Barnett, Ph.D, was just 18 years old.  As an active lifeguard, Barnett witnessed the tragic aftermath when a neighbor's child drowned.  At that moment, he vowed to do everything possible to ensure not one more child drowns. 
Barnett began teaching young children to swim and observed how they responded to certain types of communication, instruction and different techniques -- even with non-verbal infants.  This was the beginning research phase for what is now Infant Swimming Resource’s comprehensive infant swimming education and Self-Rescue program. 
Today, Dr. Barnett, is recognized by the State Board of Medical Examiners in Florida, Arizona and California, and is the only, non-medical doctor that has been invited to speak on the topic of pediatric drowning prevention during Pediatric Grand Rounds presentations at hospitals across the United States.

ISR has trained more than 200,000 infants and toddlers, delivered seven million lessons with no injuries, and received recognition from the medical community as the safest and only swim instruction program that is proven to save lives.  To date, ISR has 788 documented cases of children using ISR techniques to save themselves from drowning.   Visit our Web site at www.infantswim.com.
