ABOUT THE SPECIAL NEED:

ASTHMA is a condition that makes it hard to get air in and out of the lungs.  A child often is short of breath, wheezes, and coughs. Wheezing is a high-pitched whistling sound that can be heard across the room but sometimes is so soft of a sound that the child’s physician may not hear it. The child often complains of being short of breath and having chest tightness or pressure. There are two major forms of Asthma - intrinsic and extrinsic, or a combination of the two. The intrinsic form of asthma is caused by exercise, smoke, paint, cold, perfumes, and medications. The extrinsic form is due to foods, insect stings, roaches, dust, and pollen.  

 

NUMBER OF CHILDREN AFFECTED: Currently, there are about 6.2 million children under the age of 18 with asthma. In 2017, 1 in 12 children had asthma.
