It's time to start a little brainstorm on "Optimizing User 
Involvement".  Here are my two suggestions:

Involving Users Effectively
Getting the Most from Users

I have read the section on "Involving Diverse Users" twice, and I think 
that the issue of "need" that Henk raised is actually addressed in the 
latter part of the first paragraph.  However the sentence "People have 
different disabilities..."  could be changed to People have different 
disabilities [and needs]..."

In the second paragraph of "Optimizing User Involvement".  I suggest the 
following.  Move the sentece before the list to after the list.  Also, 
either include the list within the paragraph flow, or use a definition 
list.  The final result would be:

...from brief consultations to large-scale usability studies. ...  
(inline descriptions of, or definition list for - informal and formal 
evaluation) ... There are *many options in between these extremes.*
