Martha, I think he should participate in the project.  If possible, making some tactile presentations could help him learn more about the topic.  I have observed that teachers use pictures or posters as a learning tool for the students.  Does he learn more about the subject by including pictures that he can't relate to?

Hi Everyone,
A teacher asked me whether a blind child should have posters or photos
in a classroom presentation, and I told her if the sighted children were
expected to do something, the blind child should be as well. He is in
7th grade I think. Do you have any suggestions of how he should do this?
I said that if it were a group presentation, that he was already working
with people, so they would all have suggestions for photos and someone
could describe them. If he's working alone, a powerpoint is a good
alternative, except I don't think he has the skills to do one. Is 7th
grade to young to suggest a reader?
