Honestly, this is a big issue for me. I don't think councils provide enough resources. Yes, they may give you some packets, but how helpful is that actually? As I said in other posts, I worked at a day camp for cub scouts. I received a good 5-minute training, the council rep only read it from a piece of paper. I ended up having at least four special needs kids in my groups over the summer.
My council's roundtable voted about topics that they can present. Not a single one to provide information for troops about for special needs scouts. I see so many troops having issues with special needs kids since they have no idea what to do, half the time the parent isn't any help.
How do you guys feel about this?
