First off - bless you for your work with this young man! Way to go...
If this Scoutmaster contacts his District Exec or Unit Commissioner he will quickly
find out that provisions are indeed already in place for young men who are
physically or mentally challenged. If you find out otherwise, contact BSA national
to get the straight story on this matter. The Troop or Scoutmaster in this case
does not have to "reinvent the wheel" or make exceptions for this young man - the
plan is already in place. He can advance through ranks and work on merit badges
just like the rest of the Troop.
Good Luck and COngratulations!
