My Asthma is a free self-management resource designed for children aged around 6-11. By using My Asthma, your child will be able to understand more about their asthma, their medicines and how to better control their asthma.
The My Asthma pack contains:
My Asthma Plan - similar to our Personal Asthma Action Plan but designed specifically for children ensuring it's engaging and accessible for the age group. It lists the medicines your child is on and what to do if their asthma gets worse.
89% of parents surveyed said they felt My Asthma Plan helped their child understand their asthma better.
My Asthma Calendar - a wall calendar with stickers for children to log how their asthma is each day and the medicines they have taken.
80% of parents surveyed thought the calendar helped their child understand their asthma symptoms better.
My Child's Asthma Medicines Postcard - a postcard for parents and other carers which records the medicines the child is on and what to do if their asthma gets worse.
Half of parents surveyed found the medicines postcard useful, with many giving them to their child's school.
NOTE: Please ask your child's doctor or asthma nurse to fill in the My Asthma Plan and/or the My child's asthma medicines postcard.
