Asthma and Physical Activity in the School
Everyone needs to stay active to be physically fit. Yet 1 child in every 15 faces the challenge of asthma. This easy-to-read booklet is a perfect companion for teachers and coaches who want to help students with asthma participate in sports and physical activities. Covers the causes of asthma, symptoms of an asthma attack, how to avoid and control asthma triggers, how to help students who take medications, and how to modify activities to match children’s current asthma status. Also includes a reproducible student asthma action card.
