ADHD Question of the Week: Do You Say ADD or ADHD?

Eileen Bailey Health Guide
  • It is common for people to use the term ADD to describe Attention Deficit Disorder without hyperactivity and ADHD to describe Attention Deficit Disorder with hyperactivity. This, however, is not always the case. Many people use these terms interchangeably, adopting the term that is most comfortable and easier for them. In doing so, they are not necessarily describing the symptoms but providing a generic name for the disorder.
