Doing Research with Children and Young People Who Do Not Use Speech for Communication
Rabiee, Parvaneh; Sloper, Patricia; Beresford, Bryony
Children & Society, v19 n5 p385-396 Nov 2005
Despite emphasis in policy on participation of disabled children, we still know relatively little about how to obtain the views of disabled children with significant communication impairment and their views are often overlooked in planning and service provision. This article describes how the views of children who do not use speech were accessed in research aiming to identify disabled children and young people's priorities regarding outcomes of social care and support services. The main challenge was to develop a method that was reliable, non-threatening, enjoyable and relevant to individual children, as well as enabling children to think beyond their everyday life and express what they aspire to.
