Regressive/immature behavior

Anyone have experience with regressive/immature behavior?

Our 9-year-old (ADHD) was behaving in an infantile manner on the way to elementary school today, to the point that she was attracting the attention of other students in an embarrassing way. Her 6-year-old sister (non-ADHD) was making her way normally.

I'm of the mind that any kind of acting out usually has an underlying cause, and it seems that the 9-year-old is constantly seeking attention. Her therapist has tried to explain to her that her parents love her, even when they are not directly paying attention to her; it's not like a light switch that turns on or off. I think I'm going to emphasize this with her when I get home from work or next quiet moment we get.

Any similar experiences?
