What does "ADD" mean ?

Attention Deficit Disorder: The inability to concentrate on one thing for
an appropriate amount of time. Sometimes associated with hyperactivity, but
not necessarily. A good friend of mine had a son who was ADD and went
absolutely bonkers when he was told by the boys teacher. After it was
treated, the change in the kid was just tremendous. A complete reversal
and now a regular member of the honor roll, etc. at school. I wonder how
many kids in areas that do not have adequate screening in schools or
knowledgeable teachers/counselors are shunted into lifelong pigeon holes that
are not NECESSARY if treated properly.
