Candice Alder, Outreach Consultant
Candice is an Outreach Consultant for the Colorado Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CCDHH). She began working for the Rocky Mountain Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Center in 2002 as an ADA expert and trainer. She also interned at the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind (CSDB). She offers best practice solutions and compliance strategies that provide greater access for persons who are deaf or hard of hearing. During her time with the ADA Center, Candice collaborated and contributed to several publications on effective communication including several sign language posters. She also provided trainings to deaf and hard of hearing communities on their rights - while educating businesses and government agencies on their responsibilities under the ADA. In addition to providing training seminars on the ADA, Candice has worked in conjunction with several state, county and city government agencies on providing greater communication access through outreach, consultation and technical assistance efforts. She believes that in a world without communication barriers there are only endless possibilities for cohesion, inclusion and harmony.
