About Kickin’ Asthma:

The American Lung Association, federal agencies and other asthma experts all recognize that asthma self-management education is an important part of improving asthma morbidity and mortality among children with asthma. In addition, the Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends school-based asthma self-management interventions to reduce hospitalizations and emergency room visits among children and adolescents with asthma.

Kickin’ Asthma is an asthma self-management education program for kids ages 11-16 (grades 6-10) that empowers them through a fun and interactive approach to asthma self-management. Kickin’ Asthma includes different learning techniques suitable for teen-aged kids and highlights self-management practices, such as recognizing triggers and proper medication use.

How Kickin’ Asthma Works:

Kickin’ Asthma teaches children how to detect the warning signs of asthma, avoid their triggers, and make decisions about their health. The program is taught by an American Lung Association-trained facilitator. After attending a three-part blended learning training that takes between 3-4 hours, each facilitator is provided with a facilitator guide to deliver the structured curriculum in a school or community-based small group setting.

Kickin’ Asthma Facilitators lead a small group of teens (5-10 people per program) through four, 45-minute sessions (see Figure 1) taught on consecutive days or one week apart. Each session has sections that are optional, to allow the instructor the flexibility to make time adjustments along the way.
