Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and its sister, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), represent two common neurological conditions.

ADHD is a condition of being easily distracted accompanied or caused by hyperactivity. It is most often diagnosed in children though some recent studies suggest that it may be under-diagnosed in adults. ADD is a similar lack of attention that effects many children and adults. You can speak with an ADHD treatment specialist to learn more about the differences between these two conditions.
