About This Project

Sesame Workshop developed the project, "Sesame Street A is for Asthma" to help children with asthma lead fun and active lives. A is for Asthma's resources are geared toward both children and adults, showing children with asthma what to do when they have trouble breathing, and explaining to the adults in their lives what they can do to help. The materials encourage parents and caregivers to work with their child and their doctor in ensuring that their child maintains an active lifestyle.
