Structure and Support – What Would You Do?

This article comes from the Scouting Magazine segment called “What Would You Do?” Click through and them come back and leave a comment here…

A Scout in L.R.’s troop has Asperger’s syndrome (an autism spectrum disorder) and struggles with advancement requirements and unstructured activities. She’s looking for ways to help her Scout succeed.

MAKE A LIST, CHECK IT TWICE
We have a Scout with Asperger’s, and we have put together a checklist of what we want him to achieve during meetings, camp-outs, etc. We sit down together, so he has buy-in. We do a “table-top” exercise with him to preview what’s going to happen, so he is familiar with his assignments by the time the camp-out takes place.
