    DescriptionIn this thought-provoking book, Jan Walmsley and Kelley Johnson discuss participative approaches to research and provide an up-to-date account of inclusive practice with individuals with learning disabilities. Drawing on evidence from two major studies, they explain how lessons learnt from inclusive research in the learning disability field are applicable to others working with marginalized groups. The authors examine the origins and the process of inclusive research, describing:; how and why it takes place; who carries it out; who funds it; how it is designed; how it relates to policy and practice. They look at the challenges inherent in this work, such as balancing the voice of the researcher with that of disabled participants and clarifying roles within research projects, and explore how it can become more inclusive and empowering. Providing valuable information and advice to researchers, policy makers and students as well as other health and social care professionals, this book presents a comprehensive examination of participative research in social care.

    Review quote
    'policy makers, researchers, practitioners and students should find in this reader some thought-provoking and authoritative information and advice on how to carry out truly inclusive research with people with learning disabilities.' -Care & Health Magazine '...far more than a "how to do it" handbook. The pages are filled with thought-provoking suggestions, and nothing is taken for granted. The book was inspired by "questions we dared not ask", as the authors confess, and it does indeed consider a range of sensitive issues about power, ownership, initiation and value.' -Community Care
