    Here are 2 interesting facts:
     
    1. ADD is considered an outdated term. It used to refer to an individual who had trouble focusing but was not hyperactive. Today, this would would fall under ADHD.
     
    2. ADHD is one of the most common childhood disorders. It is estimated that there are 6.4 million children in the United States diagnosed with ADHD.
     
    There are three types of ADHD:
    1. Inattentive/trouble focusing
    2. Hyperactive/impulsive
    3. Combination of 1 and 2
     
    While these categories seem self explanatory, it maybe helpful to check out this website which provides a list of symptoms for each type of ADHD. It also explains some additional criteria for an official ADHD diagnosis.
     
     
    Another common phenomenon are adults who struggle with ADHD, with or without a diagnoses in childhood.

    There’s a 4th type of “ADHD”.
    The misdiagnosed type.  The type that presents behaviorally as ADHD but is something else, such as an auditory processing disorder (which is too often misdiagnosed as ADHD) or auditory fatigue.
    Other possibilities include a language impairment, a sleep disorder, anxiety, etc…
    Differential diagnosis is key to effective remediation.
    It might interest people to know that there are actual ADD tests, such as IVA-2, to help differentiate between a sense specific issue and a global attention issue (ADHD).
