ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is more than just a lack of concentration; there are a number of symptoms which must be present in at least two different situations. Other symptoms include loosing things regularly, being easily distracted, not paying attention to detail and is easily distracted. The key factor is that these symptoms are persistent and cause distress/difficulties in every day life. When you say he has none of the other symptoms, are you refering to the hyperactive ones? The inability to sit still, the constantly talking? These symptoms only pertain to ADHD (Atention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder). I'm very happy to hear you are taking him to be assessed, as the medical professional who assesses him will be able to consider his medical history together with your input as well as his/her own observations.
