Dwarfism fact #3: Dwarfism is covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); however, the extent to which individuals are affected varies among type and case-by-case. There are some who have little to no limited ability other than height, and many participate in sports in the Dwarf Athletic Association of America (DAAA). On the other side of things, there are many who need multiple surgeries to remain mobile. I am one of the latter. I’ve had multiple surgeries and have three metal plates and five artificial joints and could use more. I have a particularly quick degenerative osteoarthritis problem, and I’ve got arthritis almost any joint you can name. This is why I have Max! For more about how disability fits in to the LP community, look at the LPA faq. Actually, go ahead and peruse, you just might learn something.http://www.lpaonline.org/faq-#Disability
