This paper analyses the problems that should be\ud considered when designing a web site for\ud disadvantaged children.

We introduce a case study which\ud focuses on the use of the Internet in some Italian\ud hospitals and then we sketch out some guidelines for\ud designing usable web sites for hospitalised children
