This paper develops our understanding of the nature of inclusive design, first through critique of controversies that to some degree downplay inclusive design as a distinct design movement. Attentive of these criticisms we then observe designer-making practices in two cases, which respect individual difference and encourage a more material mode of participation. By bringing the bodily experience of people with (dis)abilities more closely into their own design processes we see positive characteristics and advantage in inclusive design's closer connections with making. This research advocates the expansion of inclusive design into a more material, inclusive designer-making movement, to acknowledge the universal problem of designing for everyone's unique difference. Highlights Advances understanding of the nature of inclusive design. Brings the bodily experience of people with (dis)abilities more closely into their own design processes. Studies two cases where individual, embodied experience is in closer contact with design and making. Advocates inclusive design's closer connections with making.
