ADD is a depreciated term for attention-deficit disorder. It is sometimes used to refer to the inattentive subtype of ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder).

Attention Deficit disorder, currently known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Predominantly Inattentive, or ADHD-PI, is one of the three subtypes of ADHD.


Children: Failing to pay close attention to details or making careless mistakes when doing school-work or other activities, Trouble keeping attention focused during play or tasks, Appearing not to listen when spoken to (often being accused of "daydreaming"), Failing to follow instructions or finish tasks, etc.

Adults: Often making careless mistakes when having to work on uninteresting or difficult projects, Often having difficulty keeping attention during work, or holding down a job for a significant amount of time, Often having difficulty concentrating on conversations, Having trouble finishing projects that have already been started, etc.
