The term "ADD" does not have an official, standard definition in DSM-5, so people use this term in different ways.

Some people consider "ADD" to be synonymous with ADHD-PI -- so, for adults, at least 5 "inattentive" symptoms from the ADHD diagnostic criteria, and up to 4 "hyperactive-impulsive" symptoms.

Some people think of "ADD" like a "restrictive inattentive" presentation of ADHD -- that is, at least 5 "inattentive" symptoms of ADHD and zero (or maybe 1 or 2, but no more) hyperactive-impulsive symptoms.

Some people do think of "ADD" like "SCT" or "CDD".
