The review includes an identification of theresearch aims, appropriateness of methodology, design, recruitment strategy,data collection, relationship between researcher and participant, ethicalconsiderations, rigour of data analysis, statement of findings and the value ofthe research. Results: Phenomenological research is being used exclusively withpeople with mild/moderate ID. Different philosophical or theoretical influencescontribute to the choice of research method however there is also significance toaspects such as the location of the research. Researchers need to be cognisant ofthe ethical considerations, data collection, and method of analysis and inparticular the value of the research. Conclusion: People with ID have and canbe included in phenomenological research with results having the potential toinform practitioners and improve service
