How to excel in ABCD paperwork

  On of the hardest parts of vision screening kids is getting kids gathered around valid screening technology. ABCD needs committed sceeners in its clinics from various Hubs. It is very important to carefully organize the clinic and paperwork so each child is well screened, clearly photographed and so the ABCD Coordinating Center can accurately interpret the images and then promptly notify parents of results.
