Little People of America, Inc. is a national non-profit organization that provides support and information to people of short stature and their families. We are the only dwarfism support organization that includes all of the nearly 400 forms of dwarfism. There are an estimated 30,000 people with dwarfism in the United States, and 651,700 around the world. No other organization in the world provides more resources, support, and information for people with dwarfism.

Our members include average-height parents of a child with dwarfism, adults of all ages with dwarfism, average-height spouses, grandparents, relatives, siblings; and the medical community. We also encompass people of every ethnicity and economic level.

LPA is comprised of 13 Districts (typically made up of one to four states) and within those, 70 Chapters providing services to local areas.   Chapter and District meetings rotate around the areas, so there is sure to be an event or meeting near you.
