If you and your child/student agree to take part in this research, the following will take place:
Our study coordinator will contact you to confirm consent to take part in the research
You will be randomly chosen to be in either the “Intervention” group or the “Wait-List Control” group. The treatment group will receive home visits in December through February. The wait-list control group will receive home visits in the last two months of the school year.
You will complete a survey, which will collect information about you and your child. This survey will take about 15-20 minutes to complete.
You and your child will complete a Childhood Asthma Control Test each month. This is a common series of questions and visual aids to determine how well-controlled your child’s asthma is. This survey takes 5 minutes or less.
The school district will provide the research team with the number of days your child was absent throughout the school year.
At the end of the study period, you will take another survey about your child’s school attendance and asthma symptoms. This survey will take about 10-15 minutes. If you are part of the intervention group, you will also take part in an interview about the home visits.
