From our observations, we have gained information on the qualities that Ergolab and general software for young children should have. These qualities are:
  1. 1.

    Find a means to help young children validate their answers to the program.

  2. 2.

    The young children also need a way to physically centre the mouse on its board.

  3. 3.

    Software for the younger should take into account the fact that children need to express with words the actions they intend to perform.

  4. 4.

    There is an age limit, under which some specific actions cannot be carried out.

  5. 5.

    When someone interacts with the computer thanks to a switch and through a scanning process, the first item in the selection is often harder to choose than the others.
