Scouting for the Physically Handicapped.
Boy Scouts of America, New Brunswick, NJ.
Designed to assist Scout leaders working with physically handicapped boys, the booklet offers ideas for program content and for aiding the handicapped boys in Boy Scout advancement. How Scouting can help handicapped boys physically and emotionally, and what the Scout leader should know about a boy's handicap are discussed. Suggestions are made for leading an all-handicapped unit and for leading a nonhandicapped unit containing one or two handicapped boys. Suggestions concern program planning, level of activity, help from parents, how to deal with physical activities and sports, and how to help handicapped boys meet the advancement requirements in Scouting. Information on equipment and appliances often used by the physically handicapped is given, and some of the common physical disabilities which the Scout leader may encounter are described. (KW)
