The authors discuss participative approaches to research and provide an up-to-date account of inclusive practice with individuals with learning disabilities.

'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
