This chapter discusses issues associated with the care of children with asthma by school personnel. A close partnership built on open communication and preparedness is necessary among school personnel, parents, and health professionals in order to optimize outcomes for children with asthma in the school environment. School personnel should be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of an asthma attack, assess its severity, and initiate treatment. Children with asthma must have ready access to a reliever (rescue) medication that is inhaled to relieve symptoms. School professionals also have a role in prevention.
