Established more than 30 years ago by little
people, the AQPPT is a nonprofit organization unique to Quebec.
Administered by adult members with dwarfism and parents of children of
small stature, it operates in three key areas, providing:
- individual support to its members such as
assisting them in taking steps to obtain services or helping parents of
children of small stature from the time a diagnosis is made.
- collective defense of rights to have
dwarfism recognized as a fully-fledged disability.
- information and public awareness.
The AQPPT brings together individuals and
organizations across the province, sharing its unique experience on
this little-known medical issue.
