Every kid needs to learn their phone number and address, right?
We both know the answer is a resounding yes! God forbid our child gets lost, they need to be able to share Mom or Dad’s number with a safe adult.
However, if your child has special needs, it’s easy to let those lessons slide. I mean, let’s be honest.
We can easily become overwhelmed with all the extra demands of special needs parenting.
- speech therapy,
- occupational therapy,
- behavioral therapy,
- extra tutoring,
- and on and on
If this resonates, know that you’re not alone, and I’m with you. Recently, it hit me that my kid didn’t have a solid grasp of his address and phone number.
I panicked for a minute and then got to work.
Teaching my son his phone number and address became my number one priority. And I ended up creating address and phone number worksheets for his morning binder.
When he learned both our phone numbers and our address quickly, I decided to share the set with you, FREE!

Address, Phone Number, & More!
So, if you’re homeschooling a child with ADHD, Autism, or other cognitive challenges, these are for you.
The address and phone number worksheets I’ve created include the following concepts.
- phone number,
- address (number, street, city, state, and zip code),
- how to address an envelope
Additionally, I wanted my child to have a broader understanding of place and location.
What do I mean exactly? This means that I wanted him to understand that:
- our home is ON a street
- his street is IN a city
- a city is IN a state
- his state is part of a country
- a country is part of a continent
So, these address and phone number notebooking pages will cover the basics AND some greater geography concepts. I hope you find these helpful for you and your child.
Minimalist Design for ADHD, Autism, & More!
One more thing. If you’ve been with me for any bit of time, you know I HATE visual clutter. I especially hate cluttered learning materials for kids with learning challenges.
You know what I’m talking about:
- those worksheets that are super cute, but filled with way too many distractions
- math pages filled to the brim with hundreds of math problems (yes, I’m exaggerating, but you get the point)
- colorful workbooks with pictures and designs all over them
Why is cute and fun a problem?
Remove Learning Barriers
Visual clutter is a major learning barrier to the ADHD brain. And while I use the term ADHD, this applies to kids without an ADHD diagnosis.
- sensory processing challenges,
Whatever the issue- even if it’s just that your kid HATES school work– remove the clutter. Doing so, often makes it much easier for kids to learn.
These phone number and address worksheets are minimalistic in design for a reason. Text is in larger font to help the brain process the new information more easily.
