October 1- Dwarfism Awareness Month

In October 2009, Little People of America launched Dwarfism Awareness Month.   Each October since, Little People of America and members of the dwarfism community have used Dwarfism Awareness Month as an opportunity to send the message that people of short stature are equal participants in all areas of society.  We are social workers, teachers, doctors, students, engineers, musicians, parents, and …business owners. We are neighbors, friends, classmates, peers, and co-workers.  In recognizing Dwarfism Awareness Month, we hope to celebrate who we are as a community while creating a level playing field for each of us to pursue educational, employment and social opportunities on common ground with everyone else.
