Little People of America

  “Little People of America (LPA) is a nonprofit organization that provides support and information to  people of short stature and their families.
     LPA was informally started in 1957 when Billy Barty called upon people of short stature to join him in a    get-together in Reno, Nevada. That original meeting of 21 people grew into Little People of America, a group which as of 2010 has more than 6,800 members. LPA has 73 local chapters which meet regularly as well as an annual week long conference.”
     Their website www.lpaonline.org offers many groups, outreach programs and information on dwarfism and Skeletal Dysplasia.
