I need someone to give me the chapter and verse on this; I have left the forces and work as a Residential Child Care Officer at a school for children with Social, Emotional and Behavioural difficulties. One of the year 11 pupils has Aspergers Syndrome which is a form of autism. He wants to join the Army as a bandsman. I'm 99.9% certain he can't join due to his condition (think Forrest Gump with a bad attitude and violent tendencies and that sums him up). What I need is the black and white saying people with such a condition can't join up. Can anyone help? p.s. He also wants to do the 'look at life' course in Ripon. Is this also a non-starter?
