The latest research indicates that asthma affects one in seven children and adolescents. This text examines the management and treatment of asthma and its impact in each age group, from infancy (the first twelve months), the pre-school years (two to five), the primary school years (five to twelve) to adolescence (thirteen years onwards). Its recommendations for appropriate asthma management are in line with the National Asthma Council of Australia, making it an indispensable resource for families of children with asthma, child carers, health workers and teachers.
