  1. Wish us luck. Today is COH - the first time my son has been allowed back since the incident. SM has successfully ignored every single e-mail I have sent over the last month. I'm pretty frustrated with that. I will speak to him tonight I guess.......
  2. Hi folks, Thank you all for being a sounding board here... not much progress is being made. Monday marked e-mail number three to the SM to ask about talking with SPL etc. Still no reply. There was a general "who was elected to what" e-mail that went out before my last e-mail on Monday. I thanked SM for sending it out and asked if he had thought about my suggestion of talking to senior boy leadership. Over the weekend (during popcorn sales - the only event we are allowed to participate in at the moment) I briefly mentioned to the troop committee chair that we had reached o
  3. I would a agree that being required to rigorously the same accommodations outlined in an IEP is not the way to go. In some cases these accommodations are not appropriate for scouting, plus the patrol method creates a different dynamic that what is seen in a classroom. However, it would seem to me that an IEP (if parents are willing is share!) could be a good starting point to plan for the correct modifications/considerations needed for children with unique needs. On an update to my particular situation: Troop position elections were held earlier this week. I have reached ou
  4. Thanks all for the suggestions to talk to the youth leaders. This is a good idea. I do recognize that the SM's actions are warranted in the face of this serious situation, I'm just hoping that we can find a resolution that is beneficial for all.
  5. I have not talked to the SPL/PL Only SM. I honestly did not even consider it to be an option. As far as I know the SPL has not been involved in any action plans regarding my son.
  6. One such plan was to "check for understanding" similar to his what is implemented at his school. The idea is to make sure instructions for troop activities are clearly and consistently relayed to him and that he fully understands the instructions. One of his triggers is (perceived) inconsistencies in instructions, he doesn't adapt well to change. He needs to be given time to process changes in his plans/expectations. This was one of the plans that was not communicated to the other leaders. When I spoke to the ASM about the plan (SM was absent that day) I was told there was no time for that
  7. Hi, I am a parent of a Boy Scout (and a Girl Scout leader of my own troop but that not the topic here) who is having trouble. My son has social issues that make it difficult for him to interact with other boys. This, along with a speech problem makes him a target for teasing. However, he also has anger issues that cause him lash out verbally and become destructive to his own property (think scout book here). Over the two years he has been involved in boy scouts he has had several instances were he has become angry and defiant at troop meetings and events, sometimes in response to teasin
