The Harrison Sylvester Award Nomination Form

  • This award honors and recognizes an adult with learning disabilities who has shown a strong dedication and commitment to advancing the issues of adults with learning disabilities. It is the wish of LDA to thank, in Harry Sylvester's name, an adult with learning disabilities for his/her commitment to those living with learning disabilities.

    The Harrison Sylvester Award was created in 2010 to honor Harry Sylvester, a gentle but strong voice in the field of learning disabilities. Harry discovered in his mid 50's, after struggling for most of his life, that he was an adult with learning disabilities. With the knowledge of his learning disabilities came an empowerment to help others and he dedicated his life to this work. Harry was a President of the Learning Disabilities Association of America and carried LDA's message of acceptance, understanding and support throughout the country.
