Hi, I'm new here, so please forgive me if there's a thread with this topic on - please direct me there!
My daughter, now 10, was diagnosed with asthma at 2.5. She's not too bad - brown inhaler twice a day means it's not unusual for her blue inhalers to go out of date before they're empty. She has a blue inhaler in her bag at school (the school know she's asthmatic).
We were talking tonight and she complained that she asked her teacher if she could go to her bag (2 flights of stairs down) in the middle of a test today as she started to get wheezy, and the teacher said ""no"". As soon as the class was over she shot downstairs and used her inhaler and got her breath back. I don't think she was too bad, but it's left me worried.
What do you all think I should do? Am I over reacting thinking that no teacher should refuse to let a child go to their inhaler, even during a test? What's the best way to approach this?
