ASTHMA IN CHILDREN: MAKING CHILDREN INDEPENDENT – SUPPORT OF THE PHYSICAL INSTRUCTOR

1. Permit and encourage the child to participate in regular physical activities whenever possible.
2. Notify the parents if the child cannot fully participate in gym activities.
3. Permit and encourage the child to participate in regular physical activities unless directed to stop by the doctor.
4. Allow for a reduction in outdoor activities during cold weather or periods of air pollution and excuse the student from classes if he or she has significant symptoms.
5. Attempt to determine the child’s physical limitations and encourage the child to function within those limits.
6. Not force the child to exceed his or her limitations (for example should not force the child to run laps on a cold day) when activity is not tolerated and should encourage warm up activities and exercises.
7. Be familiar with exercises that are best tolerated by children with asthma.
8. Allow the child to set his or her pace on a daily basis.
9. Permit the child to take the prescribed asthma drugs before or during exercise with no inconvenience.
