Dear MAdMAx 007,

ADD and ADHD used to be separated into Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder.

The term ADD is no longer used (medically); the term ADHD is now differentiated into three categories: inattentive type, hyperactive type or combined type.

Kind regards,
Delia
