Persons of short stature come from all walks of life, all cultural, ethnic and social-economic background. Their short stature may be caused by a growth disorder or by one of over 200 different types of skeletal dysplasia, commonly known as dwarfism. Membership is offered to persons of short stature, their families and to medical professionals and community organizations concerned with persons of short stature.
LPBC provides a variety of opportunities for involvement throughout BC. From adapted sports programs for junior and teen members to discussion groups for parents and siblings of short-statured members, our goal is to provide a variety of activities so that all members can participate in the organization.
Whether members gather in educational workshops or on a less formal social basis, meeting other individuals of short stature and their families opens up a whole new world of information, support and most importantly friendship and understanding.
Just a few examples:
Children meet other short-statured adult role models and develop lifelong friendships with other children with dwarfism.
Teens and Young Adults benefit tremendously from the social opportunities available to them. Participation in LPBC helps develop leadership and organizational skills, confidence and positive self-esteem.
Parents exchange ideas and learn about health care, adapting the home and school, laws addressing the needs of their children, and everyday community experiences.
