Children’s Rights: Merlijn and the Red Apple

Susan Koenen

Merlijn (11) is a happy, smart boy with a head full of ideas. He is the self-crowned king of his room and has a best friend who is always there for him. But there's one big problem: Merlijn is autistic and unable to attend school. A classroom full of children is too crowded for him. That's why he hasn't gone to school for years now. What kind of education will help children like Merlijn?  (IKON, 2013)
