    Can anyone provide a pdf or link to the absolutely most current DODMERB guide or regulations for physical screening and medical examinations? We are looking to provide that information to our Doctor with respect to current guidelines on ADHD.

    Thanks in advance,
    RScott

    Read Larry Mullen's post on 2/15/14. Then go to the DoDMERB link and read the "Questions on the Process?" and the Medical Codes. Several things will come into play re. the ADHD diagnosis -- when your DS was diagnosed, does he have an IEP/504 Plan in school, does he currently take meds, if he's been off meds has he been successful in school, etc.

    Thanks for the reply and the excellent info. I am glad I did not e-mail Mr. Mullen prior to reading that link...I was about to launch a note pretty much asking all of the questions he said NOT to ask. LOL

    It sounds somewhat like we should not really panic, but continue on the path we are on, document and substantiate everything, and let them come to the same conclusion we have...DS is fine, worked hard and was rewarded for a reason.

    thanks again,
    RScott

    I believe this is the current regulations list ADHD/ADD a disqualifying condition UNLESS 6 conditions can be met. The current regulations (I believe) are listed below.

    29. LEARNING, PSYCHIATRIC, AND BEHAVIORAL
    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.
