About LPA National

Little People of America is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with dwarfism throughout their lives while celebrating with great pride Little People’s contribution to social diversity. LPA strives to bring solutions and global awareness to the prominent issues affecting individuals of short stature and their families.

Currently in the 14 Districts of LPA, there are 70 Chapters across the United States and U.S. Territories. At the 2007 National Conference there were over 2,500 registered convention attendees.

About our Chapter

LPA Sunflower Chapter is located in Wichita, Kansas. We were approved by Nationals as their 70th chapter in January 2009. We are a group of families, friends, acquaintances, and professionals who are connected by our experience with short stature. Throughout the year, the Sunflower Chapter organizes social events and sports activities with our members.

We are interested in joining together for social activities, in providing support and resources to members of our community, and in raising awareness about issues that affect short statured individuals and their families.


Membership is available to individuals with a medical diagnosis of dwarfism or form of short stature, as well as their families, grandparents, relatives, and all medical professionals. Little People of America (LPA) defines dwarfism as a medical or genetic condition that usually results in an adult height of 4'10" or shorter, among both men and women, although in some cases a person with a dwarfing condition may be slightly taller than that. The average height of an adult with dwarfism is 4’0, but typical heights range from 2’8 to 4’8.

If you are currently a National Member of LPA, please get involved with the Sunflower Chapter. All donations made to the Sunflower Chapter or LPA are tax deductible & a portion of each membership goes to our local Chapter and District.
