Okay great thank you.. It seems as if he is qualified as Aspergers is not a mental disorder nor has he had to have any special accomodations made to him when he was in Highschool and when he went and recieved his Associates degree. I thank you for your time sir.
Autism is most definitely a mental disorder, and is covered by that reg. He still needs to disclose his condition to his recruiter. Do either of you have any legal, criminal, or medical issues other than what has already been mentioned?
The private is correct. Autism spectrum disorders aren't permitted for recruitment or retention.
Someone please copy/paste 2-27 p. For me please. B. DQs low functioning Autism and P. DQs high functioning Autism.
2-27p. Current or history of other mental disorders that in the opinion of the civilian or military provider will interfere with, or prevent satisfactory performance of military duty, do not meet the standard.
No neither of us have any Criminal or medical issues. Also I should probably disclose he was not "officially" diagnosed with it. He said that his doctor told him he has some of the charcteristics of it. So I really don't know if it is considered a difinite condition or if he has to be "officially" diagnosed. I'll call him tomorrow and find out more. I'd hate to make an *** of myself on here.
