Asthma Resources for Parents of Students
Asthma and your child at school
Encourage your child’s school to undertake free Asthma Training for their staff and to become an Asthma Friendly School.
Open communication with staff at your child’s school will help the school provide a safe and supportive environment for your child with asthma.
Please make sure that your child’s school is provided with an Asthma Action Plan; an Asthma Action Plan should be reviewed regularly by your child’s doctor, and the school notified of any changes. An Asthma Action plan can also include information for the school if your child requires asthma medications prior to sport or at any other time during school hours.
Ensure that your child has their blue reliever puffer and a spacer with them at school, or that this is kept in a place where the child can access it.
Discuss with your child what their early asthma symptoms might be, and help them to feel comfortable asking teachers for assistance if they are having asthma symptoms.
If your child is having difficulty recognising symptoms or using his or her medications, please contact us.
