In brief: Inattention

Add is adhd without the h.
The h stands for hyperactive symptoms. People diagnosed with adhd have the inattentive symptoms as well as the restless and hyperkinetic symptoms. Those diagnosed with add only meet the criteria for inattentive symptoms.

Good chart and lots of information about ADHD on the above website. But basically the conditions are just varying manifestations of the same condition.
