Asthma is a long-term problem with the tubes that carry air to the lungs. The inner lining of these tubes can swell, and the muscles around them can tighten, making them narrower.
Asthma can change over time; sometimes it may be worse, sometimes better. You may not always have symptoms. When asthma is well cared for, your child should be able to do everything someone without asthma can do.
Symptoms of asthma include:
- Coughing, especially at night
- Shortness of breath
- Tightness in the chest
It’s normal for children to have challenges. However, normal problems can develop into ongoing struggles that affect all aspects of your child's life. We offer both short- and long-term care to help your child overcome those challenges.
Signs that your child needs professional support:
- Won’t go to school
- Getting into trouble at school
- Disorganized or does poorly at school
- Being teased or bullied
- Trouble making or keeping friends
- Overly angry
- Won’t follow rules or ignores you
- Grouchy or withdrawn from family and friends

- Vitiligo (patches of skin or hair that turns white)
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends developmental screening for children at 9, 18 and 24 months old. This screening is very detailed. It helps your doctor determine the proper care to help your child grow up healthy and strong.
Most plans cover the screening. If you have any questions about your child’s screening, please talk to your doctor.OR

A sports physical helps determine whether it’s safe for your child to play sports. Children in Washington state must have sports physicals. For the exact rules, check with your school district.
At The Everett Clinic, our pediatric department includes the sports physical in the yearly well-child exam.
Schedule your child’s sports physical at least six weeks before the start of the sports season. This will give enough time for paperwork and any follow-up to take place.
There are two parts to a sports physical: Medical history and physical exam.
The medical history will include questions such as:
- Heart health history and symptoms
- Illnesses your child had when they were younger
- Current medications
- Serious illness in the family
- Prior injuries and surgeries
The physical exam will include checking:
- Blood pressure and pulse
- Weight and height
- Heart, lung, abdomen, ear, nose and throat
- Posture, joint and flexibility
