Open communication and regular feedback are important aspects of managing asthma. Talk with your child and the school staff periodically to be sure your child's Asthma Action Plan is working and to identify any concerns. Try to involve your child as much as possible throughout this process. The more comfortable your child feels, the more active a role he or she may take in managing his or her asthma.
If you are unsure or have questions about whether your child is well enough to go to school, or if your child is missing school due to asthma, talk to your child's healthcare provider immediately.
