Welcome, this week a reminder on asthma in the early years and some controversial new research which claims iPads should be given to the very youngest children.
Asthma in the early years
Have you got any children in your service who suffer from asthma? Chances are you do as this condition is common among children. The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne has put together this overview as a reminder for early childhood services on the types of asthma most commonly seen in kids and how to maintain effective asthma management strategies in your service.

Many young children experience episodes of wheezing, in fact as many as one in every four children will have a bout of wheezing at some stage.

At the same time, diagnosing that wheezing is asthma can be quite difficult in very young children. Asthma is a condition that is clinically defined as "recurrent episodes of cough, wheeze and shortness of breath that respond to bronchodilator therapy".

iPads for newborns?
New research carried out by the University of London has shown that very young children benefit from sensory stimulation more when using iPads than books.

The research group studied 36 children aged six and ten months old, monitoring how easily they could identify numbers when displayed on a tablet.

Leading the research at the developmental neurocognition lab at Birkbeck, University of London, Professor Annette Karmiloff-Smith highlighted the benefits of children regularly using iPads from a young age.
