Bill of Rights for Childhood Asthma Kids

For parents who have an asthma kid or toddlers asthma child or know parents who do, here is the Bill of Rights for Children with Allergies and Asthma.


A child with allergies and asthma and his/her family have the right to:

  1. Be presented with the proven scientific facts of asthma and allergies in a manner that raises appropriate concerns and avoids needless anxiety. 
  2. Be cared for by a supportive physician who provides preventive management of asthma and allergies as well as treatment for acute episodes. 
  3. Live in a smoke-free environment where reasonable attempts at eliminating relevant allergens are made. 
  4. Have full and personal access to appropriate medications and devices so that potential scholastic, athletic, and social achievements are not limited by otherwise uncontrolled asthma or allergies. 
  5. Learn self-management skills to minimize dependence on medical personnel, emergency clinics, and hospitalizations. 
  6. Expect teachers, school nurses, coaches, camp counselors, and other adults entrusted with their care to understand the enlightened handling of children with asthma and allergies.
