In my troop, we have many kids with disabilities. The majority is ADD or ADHD. We have two scouts who are more seriously disabled. One who is wheelchair bound and another who is blind and deaf. The wheelchair bound scout has morely left us due to college and his internship with Coke-Cola. The other is about 13 years old. I think my troop has adjusted well with him. Except heres the problem. My troop is quite big. Over 40 members. Of all ages. The problem is getting games he can play. So ive been trying to get ideas that would be fun for him as well as everyone else. So recently, ive done a game where he sits on the floor with a book in front of him and there are two teams to his sides. I call a number and they have to get the book with out him pointing them out. So this was working except hes somewhat deaf and coulndt hear them. So he used the floor vibrations to help, but people were tricking him by stomping their feet and so on. So that game didnt work out very well. The next game i had is called the electrc fence where patrols have to strategically get the whole patrol over a rope with out touching it or going under. It was working awesomely until his patrol launched a member over the rope right into the disabled scout. So im lost now. Any ideas?
