Because the underlying neurobiological and neurochemical bases are the same for both, ADD is now called ADHD-Primarily Inattentive Type. ADHD-Primarily Hyperactive/Impulsive Type is seen in preschool age children. Children with ADHD-Combined Type are more commonly referred for treatment, as the Hyperactive/Impulsive Symptoms draw attention. See CHADD.org for full explanation.

Attention

Hyperactivity
Both ADD & ADHD include symptoms of trouble paying attention. The difference is that patients with ADD don't have the hyperactivity and impulsivity associated with ADHD. Inattention involves: making careless mistakes; having trouble with focusing, following detailed directions and organizing; not listening well; being easily distracted; losing things; avoiding difficult tasks.
