Subject: Math in everyday living

I am looking for ways to teach high school mentally disabled students (such as those with Down Syndrome that have the basic four math skills of addition, subtr., mutlt. and div.) to use math in the real world when they graduate from high school and live in an apartment or group home. They will need to keep a checkbook, pay their utilities and bills, and keep within a budget, just like the rest of us. I am looking for any programs available or Web sites that will help these students become as independent as possible concerning the use of money, math, bills, time schedule, etc. Thanks for any help you can send my way.
