Blackpool Explorer Scouts
Module F – Making Scouting Accessible
Module F Objectives To be able to state a range of special needs that may be experienced within a section. (Remember these may not be especially obvious.) Be able to explain how to change programmes to suit the needs of all young people within the section, including those with special needs.
What is a Special Need? Having Epilepsy Being blind Being dyslexic Having attention deficit hyperactivity order Having cystic fibrosis Having heart disorder Having Spina Bifida
What is a Special Need? Wearing Glasses Having a stutter Being asthmatic Being allergic to nuts Wetting the bed at night Being slightly overweight Being slightly deaf
Contenders Ready? Then lets make like a Shepard…… and get the flock out of here……
Something to Think About? How would young people with special needs cope with the game you have just played? What would need to be changed? Are there any other tasks at your section evenings that would need changing if a young person with special needs turned up?
Try this…. Using the disabilities factsheets, think about how the programme at your group would need to be adapted to cope with some of the special needs mentioned. So what have you been doing and what have you identified that you would have to do differently?
More to Think About? Is the word “special” correct? Remember your yellow card! Are you perfect? Would you laugh at a disabled person? How would you cope? Are people with special needs more open to emotional abuse? Could you learn anything from someone with special needs?
Module F Objectives – Have we achieved them? To be able to state a range of special needs that may be experienced within a section. (Remember these may not be especially obvious.) Be able to explain how to change programmes to suit the needs of all young people within the section, including those with special needs.
