To learn how to identify the severity of an asthma episode, that is, students who need immediate medical care and those need care within one to two hours, see the Asthma Emergency Guide.
Most of the questions in the ALT are based on individual pages of One Minute Asthma, 7th edition. Teachers should print the questionnaire and answer as many questions as they can before reading One Minute Asthma.
After completing the questionnaire, check your answers and look up answers to questions you missed in One Minute Asthma. If you don't have a copy of One Minute Asthma (order here), you can print the Asthma Learning Tool for Teachers answer sheet in English or the answer sheet in Spanish.
