Learning To Serve Scouts With Special Needs

Serving Scouts with special needs is volunteers working together creating solid Scouts with DisAbilities programs. Both Scouting volunteers and BSA professional staff will be exposed to best practices for building or strengthening council and district DisAbilities Awareness Committees. Training, publications, program resources, and advancement issues are addressed as well as providing general support for units serving Scouts with visible and invisible disabilities. All participants will come away better equipped to deal with the many questions and situations involved in working with Scouts who have visible and/or invisible DisAbilities. Participants will also be trained in how to provide support and education for Scouts, families, leaders, and council staff in deliverng a quality Scouting experience.
