This answered my question without having to post it. Are you also
an educator of the arts? It seems as though many subjects overlap
and you are quite knowledgeable on a number of subjects, (which is
refreshing on this list). I hope you and others continue to post and
bring refreshing new blood to the list. Sometimes it becomes stale.

On Blindness-I would reiterate the texture and sensory media,
however things which can be altered by touch. Allow for that which
can be connected and altered as well as clay, which of course can be
pulled and stretched,(with the added natural smell). Ask your
students if there is something which they would like to learn about.
They can be an asset to your class and send you into a direction you
haven't been before.
