Wee Wheezers at Home was adapted from Wee Wheezers in 1997. One significant change was the target population: low-income, low literate, African-American population. In addition, the Wee Wheezers at Home program involved individual instruction and much adaptation to the educational materials.

Participants (1-6.9 years) in the 1997 study were randomized to treatment -eight weekly asthma education sessions adapted from the Wee Wheezers program -or usual care. Baseline and 3- and 12-month follow-up data were gathered from caregivers and from children's medical records. This home-based asthma education program was most effective with younger children for symptoms and quality of life for parents/caregivers.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America currently distributes the program.
