Shocking new research from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that one in five of all high-school-aged children in the United States has been diagnosed with ADHD, and likewise a large new study of New York City residents shows, sadly, that one in five preteens children aged six to 12 have been medically diagnosed with either ADHD, anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder.
Let's see. Is there more than one possible explanation for this?
Are there more children with ADHD than in the past? Or could this be a case of over-diagnosis of a fashionable new "disease?"
Or, of course, it could be both.
