A COLOURFUL book featuring works by local children and artists discusses the concept of disability in Noongar language, to help connect people with support services in WA.

The book was launched at disability services provider Rocky Bay in Cockburn Central where mum Evelyn McKay said there had been a need for resources with Perth references.

Previously, information booklets originated from Queensland.

Visiting my Mob (Koorliny Djinanginy Moort) is a story about Jay who has an autism spectrum disorder.

The free resource was produced by Rocky Bay as part of the Finding Different Ways project.
