LPA Dwarfism Information Cards
Have you ever been somewhere and wished you had a simple card to hand to someone who was maybe just a little bit too curious about you or your child?
LPA now has Dwarfism Information Cards for you to use in just that situation.
The cards have general information about dwarfism and the LPA office contact information. The cards are business-card sized.
There are two card options - one can be used by an adult lp, the other can be used by a parent.
Cards are sold in packs of 10 for $5.00. You may pay by cash, check or online through the orange DONATE button on the LPA Homepage. Choose "LPA Dwarfism Information Cards" on the dropdown "Reason/Program for Donation" menu. Click here for examples.
Starting Points There are many local resources for people with disabilities and their families that LPA members may find helpful to contact when needing assistance to access healthcare, education, employment, and assistive technology. Download this helpful document.
