I think the approach would have to be tactile. Some of the things that come
to mind are to use rubbing plates and a 6mm colored pencil(Dixon) or the
Portfolio oil pastel(Binney). We have some great ones including a new one
for fossil rubbings. Another thing might be to do some embossing using big
shapes(you don't say the age of the child). It's also fun to do some
collage with different textures. How about some fish printing with the
Gyotaku Fish Print Models. FYI, a customer told me once that she orders the
Sax Sketchbooks for her two daughters who are visually impaired to do
Braille writing. Lastly, clay is a natural. Maybe you could have some
materials to press the clay onto like burlap or the Shade Tex Texture
Plates. Hope this helps! Judy

I could use some info on teaching the unsighted--I want to give a very
child a valid art experience.
