36: Additional Needs

Module 36: Additional Needs is currently under review, as the terminology and content is now outdated. Up-to-date information and guidance around additional needs can be found within the Scouting for All section of Member Resources at scouts.org.uk/diversity. To discuss options to meet specific learning needs in your District, Scottish Region or County/Area, including ideas for activities please contact adult.support@scouts.org.uk.

Our national team of Specialist Advisers for Inclusion and Diversity can provide support and deliver bespoke awareness courses.

There is a range of up-to-date information and guidance within the ‘Scouting for All’ section. This includes specific content around policy and approach and working with parents and carers, and specific information about a range of additional needs, including autism. Challenging behaviour can sometimes be linked to a young person’s additional needs, and there is guidance around behaviour at scouts.org.uk/behaviour

In the Adult Training Scheme, content related to additional needs can also be found in Module 7: Scouting For All, which can be used to provide an introduction to inclusion and diversity, and practical advice about how to make Scouting inclusive. Module 15: Promoting Positive Behaviour can be used to support adult volunteers to proactively promote positive behaviour and appropriately manage challenging behaviour in their sections.

Please contact adult.support@scouts.org.uk for any questions or support.
