ADELAIDE SUBURBS: Kids with asthma and their parents are invited along to Asthma Australia’s free ‘Kids Live Well with Asthma’ sessions being held Adelaide’s suburbs during the July school holiday break.

These sessions are aimed to help children understand and take more control of their asthma so that they can live a full and active life.

Asthma is an incurable chronic respiratory condition that affects half a million children across the country and sees more South Australian kids in hospital than anywhere else in the country.

The free asthma sessions are an excellent opportunity for children aged 5 to 12 years old to explore their condition in a fun and interactive way.

Sessions will cover key topics such as how do I recognise my symptoms and what do I do when I get asthma at school?

There will be hands on activities to help understand the respiratory condition, like making your own airways and meeting Anthony Asthma.

Asthma Australia said the sessions were an opportunity for kids and parents to connect in a fun and supportive environment.

“Asthma has an enormous impact on families and can be very scary and isolating for children.  These sessions will uplift children whilst teaching them vital information,” said Asthma Australia CEO, Michele Goldman.

Asthma Australia is running the sessions free of charge thanks to support from the SA Power Network who are seeking to create a positive and empowered experience for kids with asthma.

There will be more ‘Kids live Well with Asthma’ sessions offered in the October school holiday break for those who are unable to attend these holidays.
