This week we had a 15 year old First Class Scout transfer in. He
has/is Down Syndrome. His father told us he was in his old troop for three
years. I have a call in to our DE to see if there are any publications
or advice he can pass on about Down Syndrome Scouts but he was out of
town today. The father didn't say anything one way or the other about
his limitations or abilities. We didn't press him, in part because we
were busy (we also had visiting Webelos) and in part, I think, because we
didn't know what to ask...or not ask.
We haven't had this type of Scout before. All experience and
advice requested and appreciated.
