Copy of Autism and Scouting  (2)Autism Empowerment and the Autism and Scouting Program are dedicated to changing the world by making life better and more meaningful for Scouts and families in the Autism and Asperger communities locally, nationally and worldwide.Autism and Scouting is proud to be a featured program of Autism Empowerment serving scouting families in over 50 countries.

We serve all ages and abilities and promote 4 Foundational Pillars of Positivity:

  • Accept
  • Enrich
  • Inspire
  • Empower

One way we promote our mission through service is to help scouts, families and leaders become connected with autism-friendly units in their region. With the support of scouters worldwide, we are able to identify and share scouting units around the world that have committed to work with scouts who are on the autism spectrum. Please read the disclaimer about the units that are listed.

How to Get my Unit, District, Council or Program Listed

 
    Please submit the following information:

    • Name of the Unit
    • Mailing address
    • Contact Name(s), position, email address and/or phone number
    • Any Social Media Links or Website links for your program
    • Any special information you’d like to share (optional)
    In order to be listed, we also need to have an e-mail or letter by one of the unit leaders committing to the following for your unit:

    • To practice inclusion and accept scouts into your unit of all abilities.
    • To provide a sensory break area or have a plan in place to provide breaks for scouts that may need one.
    • To show acceptance and work with each scout’s family to make sure they are also part of each scout’s journey. This also helps the unit leadership understand any strengths, learning styles, challenges or triggers that each youth may have.
    • To provide youth and adult training on disability awareness at least once every twelve months.
    • To be willing to learn about autism, ASD and any other co-condition the scout is living with.

    The Autism and Scouting Program is happy to provide you with leadership and volunteer training resources upon request. We highly recommend having each scout in your unit have a sensory questionnaire or profile on file.
