Inhibitory strategies are actions that calm the brain and nerves from working too quickly. Inhibitory strategies could consist of using a soft voice, low lights, warm room temperature, and tight swaddling of your infant in a blanket to settle down, slow down, and help fall asleep. When it comes to inhibitory strategies, there can be an appropriate calm-down and slow-down response and there can also be an inappropriate, excessive shutdown response.
