Asthma Plan Important

If your child has asthma, work with your child's doctor and school officials to create an effective school asthma-management program, according to the American Lung Association. These should be key points of the program: Keeping the child away from potential triggers, such as mold, dust and strong odors. Ensuring that your child takes asthma medication at regular intervals, as prescribed. Guaranteeing ready access to medications in case of an asthma attack and allowing your child to use his or her medication before exercising to prevent exercise-induced asthma.
