    Re: adhd question

    This is what the Medical Standards say:

    "a. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (314) UNLESS the following criteria
    are met:
    (1) The applicant has not required an Individualized Education Program or work
    accommodations since the age of 14.
    (2) There is no history of comorbid mental disorders.
    (3) The applicant has never taken more than a single daily dosage of medication or has
    not been prescribed medication for this condition for more than 24 cumulative months after the
    age of 14.
    (4) During periods off of medication after the age of 14, the applicant has been able to
    maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average without accommodations.
    (5) Documentation from the applicant’s prescribing provider that continued medication
    is not required for acceptable occupational or work performance.
    (6) Applicant is required to enter service and pass Service-specific training periods with
    no prescribed medication for ADHD."

    If you can meet these requirements, you are likely to be eligible for a waiver!
