add or adhd?

My sister is telling me that they are now using the term ADD again in addition to ADHD. Is that correct? Last I knew, they decided to combine the two together so wasn't sure if they split them apart again.

Thanks.

No, "ADD" is not a term used in the DSM-5 or ICD-10.

Both of those diagnosis/coding systems use "ADHD" to include syndromes with and without prominent hyperactivity symptoms.

Many people never stopped using the term "ADD" informally, though. (And then there's the whole "SCT" thing, which is another ball of wax.)

So I guess it depends who "they" are!

Thanks.
I don’t believe ADD is the correct term even if people are using it again. Unless, they’ve come out with DSM-6 and I’ve missed it. This is currently accurate as far as I know.

This condition is sometimes called attention deficit disorder (ADD), but this is an outdated term. The term was once used to refer to someone who had trouble focusing but was not hyperactive. The American Psychiatric Association released the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) in May 2013. The DSM-5 changed the criteria to diagnose someone with ADHD.
