There is a difference between bad behavior and ADHD driven behavior. Bad behavior is challenging the world around them. ADHD behavior is often brought on by a child trying to get energy out so that they can focus. For example, a child with ADHD may move non stop, which can drive you nuts. But while they are moving about they may be very focused on something as well, such as reading a book. They aren't being "bad" they are just trying to focus and this is what they seem to need in order to do that.
