LITTLE PEOPLE OF AMERICA - WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
LITTLE PEOPLE OF AMERICA
Little People of America, Inc., is a national nonprofit organization that provides support and information to people of short stature and their families. LPA has more than 6000 members across the United States and internationally. We have 13 districts and 70 chapters.
LPA provides social interaction, parent and peer support, medical support and education, scholarships and grants. Our members range from newborns to senior citizens, little people and average height. Dwarfism cuts across all religions, ethnicities, and economic levels. All are welcome!
LPA offers information on employment, education, disability rights, adoption, medical issues , clothing, adaptive products, and the many stages of parenting a short-statured child - from birth to adult. Information is provided through a national newsletter, the LPA Today, and numerous seminars and workshops which occur locally at chapter events, regionally at District Meetings, and nationally at our yearly national conference.
Little People of America is a primarily all-volunteer organization for persons and families involved with the condition of dwarfism. We do not diagnose, treat, or provide genetic counseling. We are involved in peer and parent support, medical resources and referrals, scholarships, and programs that benefit the dwarfism community, while promoting education, community outreach, personal and family strength, and life achievements.
