Rob Crawford

At the recently held 51st Annual International Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) conference in Anaheim, CEO and Co-Founder Rob Crawford was presented with that organizations’ highest recognition of an adult with learning disabilities who has shown a strong dedication and commitment to advancing the issues of adults with learning disabilities. Rob was specifically recognized for his lifelong involvement with LDA, dedicated advocacy in governmental/NGO policy circles and tireless promotion and message of inclusion for adults with LD in the international community.

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 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.
