al policies on how children can do this as well as paperwork parent must fill out.
  • Seek out assistance. There are prescription assistance services that can help parents or guardians pay for their child's asthma medications.
  • The ALA also strongly recommended that all children, particularly those with asthma, get a seasonal flu shot every year.

    "As part of your back-to-school preparation, make sure your child with asthma gets a flu shot," said Edelman. "Flu epidemics start and spread in schools, and the flu can lead to a serious asthma attack." He noted that getting a flu shot does not trigger an asthma attack.

    Asthma affects 7 million children and teenagers in the United States and accounts for more than 14 million missed school days each year, according to the ALA.

    The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology provides more information on childhood asthma.
