ADD

While there is currently no cure for ADD, treatment can usually help to manage symptoms. Treatment is geared toward helping those with ADD control their weak attention spans or high energy levels. This generally requires a combination of the following treatments: behavior modification and other psychological or psychiatric treatment, educational assistance, and medication. ADD is recognized as a disability under the Americans With Disabilities Act, so it is illegal to discriminate against a qualified applicant or employee because he or she suffers from ADD.
