Special Needs Scouts
Disabilities Awareness – Serving Scouts With Disabilities.
Every boy wants to participate fully and be respected like every other member of the troop. While there are, by necessity, troops exclusively composed of Scouts with disabilities, experience has shown that Scouting usually succeeds best when every boy is part of a patrol in a regular troop.
The following resources provide information about Scouts with disabilities.
For additional resources, visit the BSA’s disabilities awareness website.
The University of Scouting offers classes where leaders and parents can learn about the tools available when dealing with these challenges.
