Qualitative research has tended to not recruit participants with learning disabilities due to concerns that they would not be able to engage with the research process. Interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) is a new qualitative methodology which aims to make sense of participant's experiences through the researcher's interpretative enquiry of a homogenous sample. A literature is presented which synthesised, developed a quality guide and evaluated whether IPA is an appropriate methodology to use with people with learning disabilities. The main focus was around the quality of research is this area and additional issues to consider when recruiting people with learning disabilities. An empirical paper that investigated the experiences of women of South Asian origin in receipt of social services using IPA is also presented. It revealed that the participants are satisfied with services through 3 super- ordinate and 8 subthemes. Further research is needed in this area.
