    This paper considers appropriate research methodologies for the development of Universal Usability. It is written from the viewpoint of research which has the long term objective of developing technological systems for everyone, including people with disabilities. It considers whether new research paradigms are appropriate and how they are different from those used within traditional technological research. It suggests the development of a new paradigm of "User Sensitive Inclusive Design" which includes people with disabilities within a User Centred Design methodology, and recommends a collaborative approach to the development of such a methodology.
