In this descriptive qualitative study, 42 families raising children with and without disabilities or chronic health conditions shared the family occupations that promoted family connection and identity. Findings include family occupation types and attributes and examine the similarities and differences among family groups. These data offer valuable practice considerations that transcend decontextualized, individualistic recommendations in order to prioritize family participation needs.
