Most children are naturally a bit wild and pay attention less than we want them to. If your child is over 7 years old and still has trouble sitting still for more than a moment and can't focus at all that would be a good indicator to have them tested.

ADD, or Attention Deficit Disorder, is different from ADHD by the sufferers not having traits of hyperactivity or impulsiveness. This being said, those with ADD often ignore or have difficulty understanding relevant information, but they do not act out abnormally and show excessive amounts of energy. The two terms of ADD and ADHD are somewhat different, but are used interchangeably.
