Telephone Skills

Learning to use a telephone develops children's social and indolence skills for daily life.

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Charlotte Cushman and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

The ability to use a telephone appropriately is a skill everyone needs to learn. This interactive activity increases social interactions and develops community awareness through role-playing. Lessons include Social Skills, English Language Arts, and Independent Living Skills.

Different types of phones: cell phones (both smartphones and others) and desk phones

 

Have students practice using different types of phones, such as cell phones and wall phones.
