Subject: money math touch point system or program

I am a sp. ed. teacher. I am working on my Master's project. I am
looking for research in teaching methods for teaching money skills to
mentally retarded or learning disabled children. 

Many students have trouble counting coins due to the problem of adding
one's, five's and twenty-five's. I found one article by Stith and
Fishbein that I can use but I am having trouble finding more. I know
of the Touch Point Math and another program using touch points for
money by rebecca Levy but I can't find much more. I don't know where
to look. 
  Thank you. S. Lane
