The data consist of interviews of families whose children had been diagnosed with a developmental disability or some other long-term illness. The interviews charted the support received by the families from health and social services, educational services, third sector, and peers and relatives. The interviews were informal and the interviewees talked about, for instance, parenthood, coping, and everyday life of families with special needs children.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
