No child should be treated unfairly on any basis.

Article 23: You have the right to special education and care if you have a disability, as well as all the rights in this Convention, so that you can live a full life.

Article 30: You have the right to practice your own culture, language and religion - or any you choose. Minority and indigenous groups need special protection of this right.

Article 40: You have the right to legal help and fair treatment in the justice system that respects your rights.
