Library manager Alison Kidman said the quiz for adults was designed to show how the Collie Library is accessible to people with disabilities.

“We have large print books and audio books. The library is wheelchair accessible and the shelves are on wheels to be moved out of the way if necessary,” she said.

While the mums learnt about disability awareness through the quiz, children had a ball playing with the sensory wall on the glass.

Nearly 1000 events have been registered in Australia, which is the highest number in the 22-year history of the event.

Disability Services Minister Helen Morton said the state government’s ‘Count Me In’ vision was at the heart of Disability Awareness Week.

“The Count Me In vision is that we all live in welcoming communities which facilitate citizenship, friendship, mutual support and a fair go for everyone,” she said.

“The State Government continues to drive change in the disability sector that supports this vision, and we are proud of initiatives such as WA NDIS My Way, which got off to a wonderful start and saw 518 people in the Lower South West transition to the trial in its first three months.

Disability Services Commission director general Ron Chalmers said the ‘Count Me In’ program was designed to encourage community inclusion.
