Scouts with disABILITIES

This brief presentation was created by Doug Kemp of Troop 149 , Cherokee District, Northeast Georgia Council as part of Wood Badge Course SR476. It was presented at the Cherokee District Roundtable on February 13, 2003.

The purpose of the presentation is to make unit leaders aware of the alternate rank advancement requirements that are available to Scouts with disabilities. In general, it reviews the history and administrative basis for working with Scouts with disabilities, what constitutes a disability, available resources, and the pathways for rank advancement that are in place for Cubs Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers with disabilities.

It was produced using Microsoft PowerPoint and you will need a copy of this program to view the presentation.
