PAR is one approach to involving stakeholders in research. We conducted interviews with academic researchers (n=7) and coresearchers with ID (n=6) to develop a model describing the process of engagement in PAR for people with ID. Results suggest the solicitation of input from coresearchers with ID initiates a cycle of increasing engagement and input. Application of this model could lead to more socially valid OT research.
