Good reminders of some of the common early warning signs before an asthma episode. Some, like these specifically, Hoarse voice or dry mouth Difficulty speaking/talking in full sentences Raised shoulders/slouching are ones I need to pay more attention to since I know for a fact that they are early warning signs for me. Good article and reminder! Thanks AAFA!!

Hello Godmyfour. Welcome to these community discussions where very difficult questions can be asked and where smart and compassionate people share their best answers. My own children are past school but I can imagine how hard it is for you to send yours to school with so much uncertainty.
