This paper analyses the problems that should be
considered when designing a web site for
disadvantaged children. We focus our research on
long-stay hospitalised children who use the Internet to
communicate with realities located outside their usual
surroundings, especially with distance education
related activities. We introduce a case study which
focuses on the use of the Internet in some Italian
hospitals and then we sketch out some guidelines for
designing usable web sites for hospitalised children.
