A Warm and Heartfelt Welcome from ONH Consulting
Our president and founder, Christopher Sabine, has had a lifetime of experience with several of the unique challenges of ONH, including visual impairment, behavioral difficulties, and sensory integration dysfunction. He has had years of professional experience as a case manager and advocate for youth with chronic health conditions. By choosing ONH Consulting, you will have the special experience of working with a trained professional who knows ONH from the “inside’ and can provide expertise based on his own insights of how a child with ONH actually perceives the world, not “cookie-cutter” answers from the latest textbooks or work with children and youth with other disabilities or health conditions.

The purpose of this study is to gather data concerning the factors associated with the formation of ONH prior to birth and identify unique distributions of cases in specific geographic areas.

Your participation is completely voluntary and involves filling out a simple form, which you can submit online or by mail.
