What’s the difference between ADD and ADHD?
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is considered an outdated term. In 1994, all forms of ADD were classified as ADHD even though some individuals do not display all ADHD symptoms. Some individuals have predominantly inattentive ADHD while others may lean heavier on the hyperactive side of ADHD and other experience both sides. Though the term ADD may be outdated, some still use it as shorthand or as a way to designate the old subtypes of ADD.
What is executive function?
Brain functions that organize and activate other functions such as planning, prioritizing, recalling information, modulating emotional responses are all in the arena of Executive Function. It allows individuals to sustain and shift attention while accounting for the consequences of their actions. Actions can also be evaluated in real time so that necessary adjustments can be made if needed. Learn More
How is ADHD diagnosed?
Because ADHD appears different in every individual, there is no one test to diagnose ADHD. Instead, a professional will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to rule out the presence of co-existing conditions to reach a diagnosis. This evaluation requires a detailed assessment of the individuals history, along with gathering information from multiple sources ranging from an ADHD symptom checklist to a standardized behavior rating scale.
