Picture This: The Use of Participatory Photographic Research Methods with People with Learning Disabilities
Aldridge, Jo
Disability & Society, v22 n1 p1-17 Jan 2007
It has been argued that research that employs qualitative methods among vulnerable groups, such as people with learning disabilities, must reconcile the conflict between meeting recognized academic criteria, or measures of research "strength", while at the same time appropriately and effectively representing the experiences and needs of vulnerable respondents. This article explores some of the tensions that lie within these objectives and looks at the use of more appropriate, participatory research methods, in this case photographic participation and elicitation techniques, as a way of including vulnerable respondents more effectively in social research studies. (Contains 2 tables, 3 figures and 2 notes.)
