Special Needs Scouting

SPECIAL NEEDS SCOUTING

The basic premise of Scouting for youth and adults with disabilities is that they want most to participate like other youth and adults - and Scouting gives them that opportunity. Thus, much of the program for Scouts with disabilities is directed at (1) helping unit leaders develop an awareness of disabled people among youth without disabilities, and (2) encouraging the inclusion of Scouts with disabilities in the regular Cub Scout pack, Boy Scout troop, Varsity Scout team, or Explorer post or ship.
