We want to make sure you, your child and your child’s school have everything you need to start a new school year with asthma. Here are some of the resources you can find at

School planning: Get started at our school planning zone. This page has a large collection of our school resources. It includes tips, articles, downloads, webinars, and information on laws and guidelines.

Important forms: If your child has asthma, you will need to know what forms their school requires for managing medicines and asthma episodes at school. Find out what forms you should submit to your child’s school for the new school year.

Healthy beginnings: Help your student with asthma have a healthier school year by making sure they get important vaccines. Also, take steps to avoid the September Asthma Epidemic. Asthma rates spike as kids head back to school. We have tips to help them avoid flare-ups.
Flu season usually strikes the U.S. from October to March. People with asthma are at a high risk for complications from the flu. Take extra precautions, such as getting the flu and pneumococcal vaccines, before the season begins.
AAFA’s Community Director Kathy P updates us on her progress as she works to overcome asthma for a half-century (50-mile) bike ride. Read about her ups and downs and cheer her on as she raises awareness for asthma!
