If your adhd or autistic child wanted to enlist...

I was doing some research about if your child with adhd or autism wanted to enlist in the armed forced would they be ineligible. I ran across so many posts on different message boards that basically told people to lie to their recruiter!

Is this something you would consider doing? I would NOT.

    I would not lie to the recruiter because they may be able to find out. I believe that it isn't fair for the military to deny someone if they have ADD/ADHD or was on the spectrum. People who have those are brilliant people. I have ADHD and my grandfather had ADD. My grandfather was a medic in WWII, and he never had a problem with it.
