What is LPA?

Little People of America, Inc., is a national nonprofit organization that provides support and information to people of short stature and their families.   

Short stature is generally caused by one of the approximately 400 medical conditions known as dwarfism. LPA welcomes all 400+ forms of dwarfism.


LPA has more than 8000 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 and scholarships.  Our members range from newborns to senior citizens, little people, and average height.   Dwarfism cuts across all religions, ethnicities, and economic levels.

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.
