Description/Abstract

This paper reports on a study of how people do research that matters to people with learning disabilities and that involves them and their views and experiences. The study was an attempt to bring together people doing inclusive research so that, collectively, we could take stock of our practices. This would add to the individual reports and reflections on approaches that are already available. In particular we wanted to explore what quality means in inclusive research and how we might best achieve this. We used focus groups to share and generate knowledge and we recorded, transcribed and analysed the dialogue, looking for themes and answers to core questions. We found that there are many different ways of doing research inclusively and we propose a model to describe this. Reflecting on the findings we argue that is important to keep a flexible vision of inclusive research and to keep learning and talking together.
