    The need for critical self-reflection by researchers engaging in disability research has been widely recognized. However, whilst participatory research approaches are beginning to be used with people with learning difficulties, the literature has tended to focus on the principles underpinning such approaches rather than the practical implications of using them. Therefore, this paper seeks to contribute to this area of knowledge by reflecting on the author's experience of engaging in a research project that has sought to use a participatory approach. The need for critical self- reflection is explored before reflecting on issues of participation and power sharing. Time implications and ambiguity are also explored. It is concluded that researchers have choices about the ways in which they conduct research. However, it is essential that such choices are made in a conscious and self-critical manner.
