Accessibility research can take longer to run, so give yourself extra time before research, during research, and after research. For example, if you work with a recruitment agency that typically asks for two weeks to find participants, they may ask for three weeks to find participants with disabilities.
Like other research projects you may have run, the more criteria you add to your recruitment screener, the harder and longer it can take to find participants. In order to get enough people with access needs in your study, you may need to relax other criteria.
This article covered some of the broader project considerations for planning accessibility user research. Researchers should follow their usual project planning processes and frameworks, but allow for extra time to ensure that adequate consideration is given to budgets, locations, recruitment, and timing plans.

\"What I love about The Robot-Proof Recruiter is that Katrina tackles what everyone in HR & TA thinks before they go to bed at night: 'where does the human leave off and where does the automation start' And vice versa.

And she does it masterfully. I read her book in two days, and it was my second time reading it. In my opinion, it should be required reading for everyone thinking about a career in recruiting.\"
