Asthma 101

In order to manage asthma on a daily basis and for children to be able to participate in all school activities, it is important for schools and child care providers to first understand the disease, its symptoms, triggers, and treatments.

The Community Asthma Partnership at Wolfson Children’s Hospital (CAPW) provides tools to help schools and child care centers learn more about asthma in order to manage the disease in their unique settings. Feel free to download, print and share these with teachers, coaches, staff, and volunteers.
