Abstract

The data consist of 20 life stories written by Finnish adults with cerebral palsy in 2008. The stories were collected for the project "Well-being and rehabilitation during the life-cycle of adults with CP" conducted by the Finnish Association of People with Physical Disabilities (FPD). The aim was to study what it had been like to live as an adult with CP in different time periods in Finland. The writers were from different age groups. They were instructed to write about their life events and experiences, everyday life, and about people and things that had most affected their lives.

The dataset is only available in Finnish.
