Unless I miss my guess, Joni, I think it is a misspelling of "Attention Deficit". The condition is called Attention Deficit Disorder or is abbreviated A.D.D. It is also called Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or A.D.H.D. There is some confusion about whether it is one disorder or two. I myself have it It is where a child, usually a boy, has trouble paying attention in school and sometimes difficulty sitting still for long periods of time. I just had a clinical diagnosis just this past summer. I had read about ADD or ADHD for quite a while and from the description of the hallmarks of the Disorder and looking back on my behaviors in gradeschool through High School I thought I probably did have it. But I didn't have a proper diagnosis until last summer when Jem urged me to get it checked out so we would both know.
