A little late, but here we have it, America’s “paper of record, The New York Times, has a front page story on the dramatic increase in diagnosing children with ADD and ADHT, leading to an alarming rise in stimulant use and abuse in children and a boon for pharmaceutical companies (full story here). And talk about sexual discrimination – well, young boys far outweigh girls as the victims here. This deserves a full blog post, replete with my own anecdotal personal story about an ADD diagnosis when one of my sons was a toddler. While the mainstream press seems slow to notice trends, here are a couple other mental health dubious diagnostic maladies striking our young in vast numbers: bipolar disorder and autism. Tomorrow, I promise to write an actual blog post.
