The ISR Mission Statement "To prevent drowning and enrich the lives of children by teaching them to swim".
Because turning your back – even for a second – can be enough time for a curious toddler to reach the water.
Since yesterday, 11 infants and young children drowned in the United States. Another 39 fell into a body of water and now suffer permanent injuries. Drowning is the leading cause of death for infants and young children in at least 18 states and, nationally, ranks first for children 4 years of age and under. This preventable tragedy claims the lives of approximately 4,000 children each year and leaves another 12,000 with some form of permanent brain damage.
ISR is the safest provider of aquatic self-rescue™ instruction for babies and toddlers between six months and six years old, and the only national swimming method of its kind that emphasizes developmentally-appropriate skills training to ensure that your child is learning self-rescue skills and developing the competence required to enjoy the water.
Infant Swimming Resource has delivered more than six million lessons safely to over 175,000 infants and young children over a 40-year span, has 787 documented cases of a child using ISR techniques for self-rescue, and a 100% effectiveness rate.
