Abstract

Research of the Little People of America reveals the problems faced by stigmatized persons and how social organization can help to alleviate these problems. Important effects of membership in the L.P.A. include opportunities for social participation and mate selection, and the facilitation of psychological and role adjustments. A finding of the study relates degree of satisfaction with membership in the L.P.A. to incentive for joining.
