The article focuses on the report released by A Happy Talent, a chidrens's commissioner in Wales. Accordingly, the report reveals that disabled children received less play opportunities and more than half of the local authorities interviewed failed to disclose their plans on how to address play strategies. The Office of the Children's Commissioner spokesman noted that their report does not criticize the initiatives of local authorities, but provide feedback on the implications of their programs.
