My daughter - Maya, 6 was diagnosed as Asthmatic over the summer hols. She kept complaining of stomach aches and coughing a lot at end of last term and teachers just ignored her and told her to carry on with what she was doing. Took her to nurse and has been put on preventer and reliever inhalers which have been working although the last few nights she has been having really bad coughing bouts, does seem to ease eventually with help of reliever inhaler.
Are teachers aloud to assist children in using their inhalers in school - maya is nervous of having to use it in school as none of the other children in her class have inhalers and she sometimes gets in a muddle when trying to hold the spacer and press the inhaler. I have heard from parents in other years the school wasn't very helpful when it came to asthma and don't want her to be scared to say if she doesn't feel too good.
Any advise on how to deal with school would be really appreciated.
