Attention Deficit Disorder (or "ADD"): This term describes a lifelong developmental disability that can first be detected in infancy, early childhood or even in adolescence, and which affects a child's ability to concentrate and control impulses and behavior. A child who has ADD is not hyperactive, but will often experience a difficulty sustaining a functional level of attention in connection with the performance of normal life task or play activities, and may also experience difficulty in persisting with tasks to completion, or in sustaining concentrating for longer periods of time.
