The Handbook is silent. 33088 p. 40-44 says NO.
33088 explains qualifications for Special Needs and how alternate requirements can be set up by the local council for a Scout for Eagle Required Merit Badges. Once the Scout has done all that he can to earn a required merit badge and is proven due to his special need to not be able to complete the remaining requirements, the Council is to select an alternate merit badges of such a nature that they are as demanding of effort as the required merit badges...
The Advancement Policies were updated last year and are as I stated. The Advancement Policies take precedence over the Boy Scout Requirements.Quailman wrote:...Not to pick nits, but USScouts.org says that this requirement has been changed (actually deleted) this year. If the scout who has a disability cannot complete the entire badge, he does not have to get a partial. He can be assigned an alternate MB to earn completely. I guess they thought it was adding to the requirements if he had to earn a substitute badge and the partial in the other one.

That would seem to indicate various publications have conflicting policy or procedure information, which I don't think is true. If we're talking about typos, the correct info takes precedence. If a newly revised pub has updated info, that takes precedence.milominderbinder2 wrote:The order of precedence is:
