        A IS FOR ASTHMA: Quick Tips for Parents and Caregivers


        Remember the Asthma Action Plan: 1) Sit down. 2) Stay calm. 3) Ask for help.


        Reduce your child's exposure to asthma triggers.


        Team up with your doctor! Take your child for regular check-ups.


        Share information about your child's asthma with your family, friends, and your child's caregivers. Give them copies of your child's "My Asthma Profile"[PDF], a handout that includes basic information about your child's treatment.
