No great revelation to us parents, but once the general population realizes they’re going to have start footing the bill, maybe we’ll see a greater priority from Big Pharma.   The article cites an “an 846 percent growth since 1997.”  I’m sure the CDC will continue to attribute that to better diagnoses.

In an unrelated matter, the CDC refuses to acknowledge that days have been getting longer since Dec 21.  It attributes the “apparent” increase in daylight to a better diagnosis of the sun’s effects.
