Inattentive ADHD (ADD)

Inattentive ADHD or ADD is a form of ADHD characterized by inattention and the inability to focus and pay attention. Individuals with ADD will have an absence of hyperactive and impulsive tendencies commonly found in Common ADHD and Hyperactive and Impulsive ADHD subtypes. Since children with ADD do not have these hyperactive and “always on” predispositions, it is much more difficult to discover ADD in children as opposed to ADHD. As a result, countless children dealing with ADD go through childhood untreated and tend to be viewed as being uncommitted or lazy students through school and at home.

  • Anxiety
