Twenty-eight asthmatic children and their parents participated in a pilot study of a ''Family Asthma School'' to promote increasing self-management. The program is described in detail, as is its comparison with a control group. A structured questionnaire and the Family Environment Scale were used before the intervention, after 3 months, and at 1-year followup to compare both groups. We found increased independence and responsibility for daily health care in the intervention group.
