Childhood Asthma Control Test

The Childhood Asthma Control Test is a way to help your healthcare provider determine if your child's asthma symptoms are under control. Answer the questions below and then share the results with your child's healthcare provider. Based on the score, he or she may suggest a variety of options to help better manage your child's asthma.

Your answers to these questions are not saved on Only you can have access to your answers.

The Childhood Asthma Control Test is designed for children 4 to 11 years old. If your child with asthma is 12 years or older, or if you are an adult with asthma, take the ASTHMA CONTROL TEST*.
