The convenience sample of 58 parents/guardian of asthmatic children age 0-9 years was recruited from rural areas in Virginia, North Carolina and upstate New York. Participants completed the three questionnaires in a face-to-face interview with the investigator. An unexpected finding was that none of the participants scored within the inadequate or marginal levels of functional health literacy, limiting generalization of the findings to parents with low health literacy. But when education was separated into less than high school graduate and high school graduate and higher, step-wise regression analysis revealed that those who had completed high school scored significantly higher on the TOFHLA and reported fewer hospitalizations for their children. These findings confirm that health care providers need to be diligent in assuring that health education materials as well as verbal instruction are understood by the health care recipients that they serve..
