Alternate merit badges

I was wondering if anyone had the "alternate" merit badges a Scout
can earn if a boy is disabled or handicapped. Is there a URL
somewhere with this information on it?
Specifically, we have a boy in our troop who has a "debilitating
fear" of the water. Thus he is unable to earn his swimming merit
badge. This Scout, though mildly intellectually challenged, has
received his FIRST CLASS RANK. We are hoping that he might
ultimately complete the necessary merit badges for his EAGLE RANK.
He will have to complete the alternate merit badge for SWIMMING.
Also, how would this be handled if he ultimately goes to the EAGLE
