ADD stands for attention deficit disorder, and ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. ADD is an older term that was changed to ADHD in 1994, but they refer to the same condition. There is no difference between adult ADD and adult ADHD. Another term that has sometimes been used is AD/HD.
