Research project: Towards equal and active citizenship: pushing the boundaries of participatory research with people with learning disabilities (Nind) - Dormant - Dormant

Currently Active: 

This seminar series will focus on participatory research with people with learning disabilities and in particular the challenges related to two complex but relatively under-explored issues in participatory research: involving people with learning disabilities in data analysis; involving people with learning disabilities who have high support needs in participatory research

The proposed seminar series has two broad aims. Firstly, to critically examine the unacknowledged or underexplored tensions and challenges to what might be considered full or genuine participation by people with learning disabilities in research. The second aim of the proposed seminar series is to seek to stimulate innovative developments in methods by synthesising the achievements in relation to participatory research methods with people with learning disabilities and acting as a catalyst for thinking and action in the two identified areas needing development.
