Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

The theme of children’s rights is receiving more attentionthan ever. Although the manifest on this topic was universallyagreed decades ago, it is obvious that the ambitionsexpressed in it are far from being implemented. In this article,we explore how the experiential approach can contributeto the process of clarification and operationalisationfor children between birth and the age of six. The centralidea is that well‐being and involvement as process variablescan provide a measure for the degree to which children’srights are met, especially in educational settings.The scanning and screening are highlighted as proceduresto assess levels of well‐being and involvement. The datayielded provide a rich source for interventions both at theindividual and group level. Next, we review what we canlearn from research where these process‐variables havebeen observed, that is their levels and the factors in the(learning) environment that determine them. In the closingdiscussion, we hold the insights on well‐being and involvementagainst the light of “children’s rights” and articulateimplications for practice, research and policy.
