ADD stands for Attention Deficit Disorder while ADHD stands for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder; both have the lack of concentration where ADHD has the added component of hyperactivity. The term hyperactive is easily used to describe a child with a lot of energy; however it is much more than this: it includes interrupting others in conversation, walking/running around and climbing on things at inappropriate times. It is often thought that Ritalin 'calms' children down; it is in fact a stimulant that stimulates focus and attention.
