Most children who have been diagnosed with asthma can still take part in all the usual activities of an active childhood. An asthma management plan, which is regularly reviewed and communicated to everyone who cares for your child, is an important part of a healthy, active childhood with asthma.
The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne has lots of great asthma resources, including an asthma management plan generator to share with all those involved in the child’s care.
The Raising Children Network has a comprehensive series of
evidence-based articles on asthma.
There are two national bodies for asthma,
National Asthma Council, and
Asthma Australia. Both offer a wealth of online information for children and adults.
