Meeting the challenge of interpretation: Hearing the voices of people with intellectual and developmental disability through I-Poems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Including the inner perspectives of people who have intellectual disability can pose methodological challenges to qualitative researchers. This article explains how the Listening Guide was applied as an additional step in the analysis during a study which used hermeneutic interviews with people with intellectual disability as the sole method of data collection. An argument is made for the systematic application of the guide with a focus on the use of I-Poems. This article advances qualitative methodological approaches and concludes that this method of drawing attention to the participants’ own voices provides a unique basis for interpreting interviews and tasks researchers to examine the use of the Listening Guide.
