According to estimates in 2010, autism affects approximately 1 out of 150 children born in America, with the majority of them being boys. The Boy Scouts of America is the nations largest youth organization. This site was created to give information to parents of autistic children considering if Scouting is right for their child and for Scout Leaders and Volunteers (Scouters) who have autistic children in their unit.
This page was created by a volunteer for the BSA who is the parent of a child diagnosed with ASD/PDD-NOS. This site is not affiliated with BSA and does not speak on behalf of  BSA nor any Autism related organization. Opinions expressed on these web pages are those of the web author. Contact your local Council Office for official communications of The Boy Scouts of America.  Items may be reproduced and used locally by Scouting volunteers for training purposes consistent with the programs of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) or other Scouting and Guiding Organizations.
