April 2019 – Scouts with Special Needs

Special needs can mean anything from a learning disability like dyslexia to hearing loss to a physical disability like cerebral palsy. Even if you don’t have any special needs youth in your den or pack, you’re sure to find this discussion with Warren Weener, the chair-elect of the National Disabilities Awareness Committee, very enlightening. If you’re interested, our big sibling, ScoutCast, addresses this same topic from the perspectives of a special needs Scout and a parent. TRANSCRIPT

April 2019 – Scouts with Special Needs

Last December there was a post on the Bryan on Scouting blog about Benjamin Waggoner, a Scout who has spina bifida and is Eagle Scout No. 527 in Troop 890 in Dallas, Texas. So, we invited Benjamin and his dad, Chip Waggoner, to chat with us about Scouts with special needs from the perspectives of a Scout and a parent. If you’re interested, our little sibling, CubCast, addresses this same topic from a leader’s point of view. And even if you don’t have any special needs youth in your troop or crew, you’re sure to find this episode both enlightening and inspiring! TRANSCRIPT
