  • Slide 5 - Tips for Parents
  • Slide 6 - If your Scout has ADHD, let your Scout leader know. Tell him what works well AND what does not help.
  • Slide 7 - If your Scout takes medication to help him focus at school, it may help him focus better during Scout activities as well. You may want to discuss this issue with your Scout’s physician.
  • Slide 8 - Prescription medication is the responsibility of the Scout taking the medication and/or his parent or guardian. A Scout leader, after obtaining all necessary information, can agree to accept the responsibility of making sure a Scout takes the necessary medication at the appropriate time, but BSA policy does not mandate nor necessarily encourage the Scout leader to do so. Also, if state laws are more limiting, they must be followed.
  • Slide 9 - Make sure your Scout knows that his medication is meant to help him focus, not to make him behave or “be good.”
  • Slide 10 - Be sure to tell the Scout leader what your son’s needs are if he is going on a day trip a weekend camping trip, or a week at summer camp. There are many things the leader can do to help your Scout be successful and have fun— if he is informed.
  • Slide 11 - Consider getting trained to be a Scout leader yourself.
  • Slide 12 - Tips for Scout Leaders
  • Slide 13 - Try to let the ADHD Scout know ahead of time what is expected. When activities are long or complicated, it may help to write down a list of smaller steps.
  • Slide 14 - Repeat directions one-on-one when necessary, or assign a more mature buddy to help him get organized.
  • Slide 15 - Compliment the Scout whenever you find a genuine opportunity. Ignore minor inappropriate behavior if it is not dangerous or disruptive.
  • Slide 16 - Provide frequent breaks and opportunities for Scouts to move around actively but purposefully. It is NOT helpful to keep ADHD Scouts so active that they are exhausted, however.
  • Slide 17 - When you must redirect a Scout, Do so in private, in a calm voice, unless safety is at risk. Avoid yelling. Never publicly humiliate a Scout. Whenever possible, “sandwich” correction between two positive comments.
  • Slide 18 - Be aware of early warning signs, such as fidgety behavior, that may indicate the Scout is losing impulse control. When this happens, try a Private, nonverbal signal or Proximity control (move close to the Scout) to alert him that he needs to focus.
  • Slide 19 - During active games and transition times, be aware when a Scout is starting to become more impulsive or aggressive.
  • Slide 20 - Expect the ADHD Scout to follow the same rules as other Scouts. ADHD is NOT an excuse for uncontrolled behavior.
  • Slide 21 - If it has not been possible to intervene proactively and you must impose consequences for out-of-control behavior, use time-out or “cooling off.”
  • Slide 22 - Offer feedback and redirection in a way that is respectful and that allows the Scout to save face. When Scouts are treated with respect, they are more likely to respect the authority of the Scout leader.
  • Slide 23 - Keep cool! Don’t take challenges personally. ADHD Scouts want to be successful, but they need support, positive feedback, and clear limits.
  • Slide 24 - Find out about medical needs. Make sure you have what your council requires to ensure the Scout’s medical needs can be met, Or have the parent come along.
  • Slide 25 - If you must administer medication, don’t tell the Scout that it is a “smart pill,” or that it will make him “behave.”
  • Slide 26 - Offer opportunities for purposeful movement, such as Leading cheers Performing in skits Assisting with demonstrations Teaching outdoor skills to younger Scouts This may Improve focus, Increase self-confidence, and Benefit the troop as a whole
  • Slide 27 - ADHD Scouts are generally energetic, enthusiastic, and bright. Many have unique talents as well. Help them use their strengths to become leaders in your troop.
  • Slide 28 - Buzz Group Scenarios
  • Slide 29 - Buzz Group Debriefing
  • Slide 30 - Why Scouting Is a Great Program for Youth With ADHD
  • Slide 31 - Scouting is a well-thought-out, highly structured program that provides a step-by-step sequence of skills for Scouts to master.
  • Slide 32 - Scouting promises fun, friendship, and adventure.
  • Slide 33 - Scouting offers frequent positive recognition.
  • Slide 34 - Scouting develops social skills and leadership skills.
  • Slide 35 - Through systematic Explanation, interactive Demonstration, and Guided practice, Scouting Enables ADHD Scouts to discover and develop their unique strengths and interests.
  • Slide 36 - Small acts can have great consequences.
  • Slide 37 - The ADD/ADHD Iceberg adapted by permission of Chris Dendy, Teaching Teens With ADD and ADHD: A Quick Reference Guide. Global Marine Drilling in St. Johns, Newfoundland published the photograph of the iceberg. A diver for the company took it when the sun was almost directly overhead.
