You've asked a frequently debated question.
Some people will argue vehemently that it can't ever be outgrown; that if it is, it was never "truly" ADD and that this is just another example of how often ADD is overly diagnosed.
Some people will tell you that yes, ADD can be outgrown.
I think most everyone would agree that, at a minimum, kids can learn to compensate for their inattention as they get older. Most people "settle down" as they get older and channel their hyperactivity into more socially acceptable outlets. And, you shouldn't confuse ADD with intelligence: many people with ADD have gifted IQ's and, when sufficiently motivated, can make straight A's.
So, I personally can't tell what's happened in your case, but I am happy that things are working out well for you!
