Phone skills are an important component of social interaction. Many individuals, even those who are fairly comfortable in social situations, have discomfort or anxiety when using the phone. For individuals with vision impairments who are working to develop social skills, practicing interactions over the phone can be a good way to learn about back-and-forth conversation patterns, phone etiquette, and general courtesies.
In this activity, students use the phone to order a pizza from a local pizza place. This activity encourages social skill development along with many other skills, and leads to a fun, delicious reward!
