While the term ADD, or attention-deficit disorder, has become increasingly popular among laypersons,
ADHD, or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, is the only clinically diagnosed term for disorders characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity used in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder, Fourth Edition.
There are actually three different types of ADHD, each with different symptoms: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive/impulsive, and combined.

A legitimate mental disability often viewed as a made up excuse for poor performance in school (which it frequently is.) It is natural for children to display signs of ADD, this does not however mean they are afflicted. It means they are normal, well-balanced human beings. Symptoms generally fade in the early teens; if by 15 an individuals condition persists or worsens, they may (but not always) be justly diagnosed. However, for those who genuinely suffer, the clarity of mind the medication can provide is priceless and worth irritating fakers who discredit the illness.
This is not a sign of stupidity; in fact, ADD frequently affects those with above average IQs, such as Ivy League students, and many renowned geniuses throughout history. Though the occasional genuine moron and/or average thinker will fall victim.
A test of whether or not the condition is actual could be if the individual in question has difficulty focusing on the activities they enjoy as well as activities they dislike.

Short for attention deficit disorder. An entrepreneur-friendly affliction, which is often the catalyst for producing disruptive or revolutionary ideas.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not just a lame excuse for misbehaving children. While it is sometimes labeled as so by people who dont know what they are talking about, it is an actual disorder that has more effects besides misbehavior, including difficulty concentrating and restlessness, and should not be discounted amongst cynics with nothing better to do than whine on the internet.

Attention Deficit Disorder is a REAL disorder that every douche bag and their mom likes to PRETEND they have. Either to score meds or to gain the sympathy of others, while the other half of the world likes to pretend its all a big joke.
Well ADD is in fact a REAL medical disorder and makes doing simple, every-day things difficult to focus on. People who really DO have ADD are not joking when they say they find it difficult to focus on homework, classwork, etc etc. Its not funny and the medication for it really DOES help and they arent trying to score narcotics
