I've got what I think is a good idea for teaching either young kids or kids with special needs how to use the telephone. However, since I do not have kids of my own, I need to research how this is done in the wild. If you have children, please answer a few questions, if you're willing. If you have friends with kids and know answers to these questions, please reply, as well. Thank you for your help!

At what age did you teach your child how to use the telephone? If you didn't so much "teach" them, at what age did they exhibit the knowledge of how to use the phone correctly?

How did you teach them to use the phone? Did you use play phones, real phones, etc.?

Do you have any recommendations for teaching/training tools (like a brand or toy you may have used)?

Little kids (1-3) have toy phones. When relatives call, you make the children say a sentence or two (2-3). When they are 5, you teach them how to use the phone in emergency circumstances (kid should know their address and phone). Sometimes kids are stupid, so it can take up to two years for them to really get it. By the time they are second grade, they can use the phone on their own.

...and by the time they are in fourth grade, they want their own phone line.
