IPAR-UCD – Inclusive Participation of Users with Cognitive Disabilities in Software Development

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 12376)

Abstract

This article presents a new inclusive research concept for research and development (R&D) IPAR-UCD. An adaptation for collaborative R&D with peer-researchers for cognitive accessibility is still missing. This inclusive research concept investigates and combines two methodological approaches: Inclusive Participatory Action Research, IPAR [1] and User-Centered Design, UCD. With this inclusive research and development method, a concept is presented that has already been successfully applied and further developed in the »Easy Reading« project (ER) itself, together with the target group [2, 14].
