Is ADD the Same as ADHD?

By April 11, 2012

Follow me on:

Oftentimes, there can be some confusion over the use of the terms Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). How do they differ? Are they the same thing? Can I have ADHD if I am not hyperactive? Why does ADHD sometimes have a slash -- AD/HD? What is the correct term to describe what I (or my child, spouse, friend, etc.) have?
