Asthma is the most prevalent chronic condition for children. Education for all children about asthma, its affects and management will help build a better awareness of asthma in the general population, as well as break down stigma based on myths or mis-information.

All presentations provide some basic knowledge of asthma and age appropriate responses to helping a mate having an asthma flare-up.

Asthma Kids is an interactive online trail for primary school aged children and can be done in the home or in the classroom.
Your host, Chester, guides kids through an interactive Asthma Trail, and explains…
- how it feels to have an asthma flare-up; how taking medicines helps him;
- how he keeps his asthma under control so that he can participate in the activities that he wants to.
Asthma Kids helps all kids, with or without asthma, to understand more about asthma, a condition that affects over 2 million Australians. Chester's Asthma Trail starts with an age-specific video, introducing asthma in a fun way. Then, by answering questions and doing activities, kids collect blue balloons. On successful completion, with the help of a parent or teacher, they can enter a monthly prize draw.
So what are you waiting for? Join Chester on his Asthma Trail here!
