What do you mean by 'Attention Difference Disorder'? Isn't it supposed to be Attention Deficit Disorder?

The official term for ADD/ADHD is: AD/HD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. From my perspective, there are often not deficits with attention, rather there are differences. I take a strength based approach to ADD/ADHD, and I like to turn the deficits into differences, and then turn the differences into strengths. When I use the term 'Attention Difference Disorder', I am not aiming to officially change the name of AD/HD, rather, I want to help you to change how you think about ADD and ADHD.
