The key to im success
The Key to IM Success:

  • Modify for Engagement!

  • Be Spontaneous for Novelty!

  • Increase repetition for

    Synaptic growth!

Examples of infant modifications
Examples of infant modifications:

Using a folded sheet or large towel, swaddle the infant ‘hammock style’ with their face looking towards their mother or caregiver. Starting low and slow, gently swing to the right and then to the left, providing soft ‘end points’ to mark the beat. Movements may also include up and down, with cushions or a mattress beneath the infant. Tempo should be no higher than 54 bpm, and if the infant shows signs of distress, skip to every other beat for consistency. Follow the infant’s tolerance and lead. A soft song or lullaby can be sung in sync to the beat.




Key systems influenced by regulating to a beat
Key systems influenced by regulating to a beat

  • Breathing

  • Engagement

  • Autonomic nervous system responses

  • Vagus nerve

  • Audition


Which in turn can help with
Which in turn can help with:

Down regulation

Up regulation

Respiration

Digestion – reflux (GERD)

Feeding – colic

Sleep – sleep apnea

Alert state and regulation of primary functions.

Considerations
Considerations… tendencies

  • Long repetitions to increase tolerance to hearing the beat in the environment

  • High energy prompting and hand over hand assist to generate pockets of engagement.


Feeling the beat together
Feeling the beat together tendencies

  • Hand over hand assist

  • Containment and postural support
