Learning Phone Number

Learning how to make a phone call

Instructions Printer-Friendly

  • Find a toy phone or non functioning phone
  • Show child how to dial or punch the phone number he needs to remember
  • Expose child to all the phones in his “world” - cell, land line, rotary dial, etc.
  • Continue practicing until child can dial his own phone number with area code from each type of phone.  This might take several opportunities before child is comfortably dialing a phone

Simplify

Write down the phone number you want child to remember on a piece of paper.  Together, look at the numbers and "dial" on the phone.
