It is important to understand that the language used to describe ADD/ADHD is confusing to many: the “official” medical diagnosis is currently Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, even though most adults with ADHD are not hyperactive. In fact, we used to think that boys with ADHD outgrew the disorder because their hyperactivity seemed to disappear during puberty. This is not true: Most (70%) adults are still highly distracted. As a result, the term ADD has gained popularity among the general public, is often used by the media, and is even commonly used among professionals. Whether we call it ADD or ADHD, however, we are all basically referring to the same thing.
