Asthma Australia and its member Asthma Foundations provide a range of masterclasses to assist with the management of a child's asthma. The masterclass is well attended and valued by parents of children with asthma. You may also be able to attend specially organised sessions at pre-arranged times, e.g. a Question and Answer with an Asthma Expert or a Parent and Child Live Well session.
As a parent of a child with asthma, there's a lot to learn and knowing the basics about asthma and the latest about asthma management can help you ensure your child has well managed asthma. Your guidance through their early years helps your child understand their condition and develop good self management skills as they become more responsible. This is important for setting them on a successful path to live well with their asthma through life.
Who should attend?
Parents and/or carers of children with asthma.

- Asthma Symptoms;
