This study by Brady et al. has an extremely laudable aim of trying to gain a deep understanding of the experience of a person with dysarthria interacting with rehabilitation services and managing their condition day-to-day in their own environment. Their stated method of using a ‘constant comparative approach (grounded theory)’ would be an excellent approach to exploring the topic. Unfortunately I cannot see that their methodology bears much resemblance to grounded theory or constant comparison at all.
