Experimental: CHESS + Case Mgt
Case Management (with monthly support calls) and CHESS services were available for a 12 month intervention period. Support calls refer to check in calls by a nurse to the parents to see how the child is doing. CHESS services include access to a website with information on asthma management, discussion groups and a case manager.

- Percentage Changed in Adherence Score [ Time Frame: Baseline compared to the mean of the combined 3, 6, 9, and 12 month scores ]A baseline number of participants less dropouts was gauged against the weighted average of the number of participants in study period. The percentage change in adherence from baseline through the study was measured and is reported below, together with confidence intervals.
- Number of Symptom-free Days [ Time Frame: Baseline compared to the mean of the combined 3, 6, 9, and 12 month scores ]A comparison in the average number of days that a child goes without asthma symptoms between experimental and control groups are shown below.
- Improvement in Asthma Control [ Time Frame: Baseline compared to the mean of the combined 3, 6, 9, and 12 month scores ]A six item survey on a seven point Likert scale measuring daytime and nocturnal asthma symptoms, missed school days and rescue medication use in the previous seven days. Lower scores signal better asthma control.
