To examine psychosocial care needs of children with recent-onset asthma. Data were collected over 2 years from 63 children ages 8-14 years. Children's need for attention to specific aspects of their asthma care remained high over the 2 years, as did their perceived needs for information and support and their concerns and fears. Children have many needs, and healthcare professionals may not be providing care that addresses these needs. The Child Report of Psychosocial Care can be used as a quick tool to assess and guide interventions related to specific areas of need.
