Last Editorial Review: 4/5/2002

NAEPP's easy-to-read booklet, "Asthma and Physical Activity in the School" (Pub No. 95-3651) is a perfect companion for teachers and coaches who want to help students with asthma participate in sports and physical activities. The booklet covers the causes of asthma, symptoms of an asthma attack, how to avoid and control asthma triggers, how to help students who take medications, and how to modify activities to match children's current asthma status. It also includes a reproducible student asthma action card. You may order the NAEPP booklet at:
