Students in school with asthma should have an Asthma Action Plan (AAP) filled out and signed by a medical provider. During Covid 19 and for children over 4 years of age, an inhaler and spacer/chamber is recommended instead of a nebulizer to administer asthma medications. Please discuss this change with your pediatrician. This plan outlines the best way to manage the child's asthma, including medications needed. Using inhalers with a spacer is recommended for children, rather than the nebulizer, especially away from home.
Iggy and The Inhalers is a terrific way for you and your student to learn about manging their asthma.
