This year, CHADD will be celebrating 25 years of making a difference for those with ADHD. Candace is very excited about attending this year’s conference, which is surely going to be a blast! She enjoys going to the workshops, so she can bring back new information to share with her clients.

At each CHADD conference, there are always wonderful speakers who share their knowledge about ADHD and how to manage with it.

Coach Candace Speaks At Kolmac Clinic Fri, 22 Jun 2012 21:29:56 +0000 Coach Candace Continue reading ]]> Coach Candace met with several doctors and therapists that work with the young adult population at the Kolmac Clinic. They discussed the link between ADHD and addiction. The doctors shared that many of their patients are diagnosed with ADHD/ADD when they come to the clinic for after-care. The therapists and doctors shared that they are concerned about their patients and are looking for other resources outside of the clinic to help them manage their ADHD/ADD. Coach Candace discussed the adult ADHD support group that she leads once a month. She also discussed how beneficial AHDH coaching is as a part of the treatment plan for their patients. Coach Candace is looking forward to working with the doctors and therapists at the Kolmac Clinic to help support the needs of the young adult population.

Are ADHD and Dyslexia Connected? Fri, 22 Jun 2012 21:29:28 +0000 Coach Candace Continue reading ]]> Many people with ADHD are dyslexic too, like Coach Candace. Perhaps this is where she and her clients get their creativity. Yes, they have different brain wiring and it is truly is a gift! Coach Candace has been reflecting on this recently due to an article on Huffington Post about dyslexia and creativity. With the correlation between ADHD and dyslexia, the article was particularly relevant to ADHD Coaching for LIFE, and we thought you might be interested. The article can be read here.

Through work at ADHD Coaching for LIFE and Positive Learning Experiences as a coach and tutor, Candace has worked with a number of people with dyslexia. Do you want to reach your fullest potential? If you want to tap into your creativity and work on organization and time management, contact Coach Candace for coaching. A month of coaching is fantastic for building strategies and techniques to help with your challenged areas in your life. We do recommend three months to help form structure and habits. If you are outside of the DC Metro area, Coach Candace also offers sessions via Skype. For more details or to set up a free thirty minute consultation, contact Coach Candace at

Why Bring Candace to Your Next IEP/504 Meeting?
Coach Candace has been working with the school systems since the late 1970s after she got her first degree in Special Education. She works tirelessly in advocating for her clients and has been extremely successful in helping them get the accommodations they need and deserve.
