Article 28 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child:
All children have the right to primary education.

Merlijn (11) is a cheerful, smart boy with a head full of ideas. But there is one problem: Merlijn has autism and because of that he can not go to school. School is too busy for him. A loud voice, quarreling children or a nasty comment are difficult things to deal with. “Then my head will burst like a watermelon”, Merlijn said. At the same time, he misses school and hopes there will be a solution to his problem.
