Abstract

Issues relating to qualitative research with disabled children and young people will be discussed. Semi-structured interviews with boys who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy were conducted to explore their thoughts on how they might make a decision to take part in medical research. Assumptions about disabled children’s vulnerability can impact how researchers conduct qualitative research, and how they are involved in significant decision-making. Working reflexively and in partnership with children illustrates their competence, supporting reconsideration of their vulnerability.
