Troop Leader Guidebook Vol 2 - Corrections

posted Nov 22, 2016, 9:17 PM by Lynn Hamilton
To everyone who has purchased or who plans to purchase the new Troop Leader Guidebook Vol 2--
 
It contains a welcome section on working with Scouts with disabilities; however, one paragraph is incorrect, providing wrong information regarding alternative requirements for Scouts with Special Needs.
 
It states on page 156 that Scouts must complete as many of the required merit badges as his ability permits; this is correct. But it goes on to say that the Scout must complete as many of the requirements of the required merit badges as his ability permits; this is incorrect. A Scout who cannot complete one or more of the requirements of a required merit badge may substitute another merit badge (with council approval). This is simply a 1:1 substitution.
 
Please cross out paragraph 3 on page 156.
 
For any question on this or anything else regarding Special Needs, contact Chuck Chatlynne (chatlynne@comcast.net).
