School Readiness Project

The School Readiness Project (SRP) provides services for families of preschool aged children throughout O`ahu, Molokai, and Hawai’i Island. We provide developmental, social-emotional, hearing, vision and autism screenings. SRP works to strengthen families through case management and parent education. Let us be part of your family’s medical home and support pediatricians to better meet the needs of your child.

The goal of the School Readiness Project is to support children in gaining the skills to be successful in their education.

SRP is a collaborative project with Aloha United Way, The Community Learning Center at Ma`ili, Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Kukui Center, and Kamehameha Schools.

Contact LDAH to schedule a screening event in your community. Individual screenings are also available by appointment in both our Honolulu and Waianae offices.

Childhood Screenings


We use the Plusoptix Digital Vision Screener to check your child’s eyes. It is an accurate, non-invasive way to detect a variety of vision disorders in children. It takes moments for the device to screen your child’s eyes and produce immediate results for your review.

Case Management

Case Management is provided for families of children identified with a specific need through the screening process. Our staff will support you by explaining the results of the screening, offering you next-step solutions, connecting you with resources from your community and by following up with you on referrals made to other systems of care.


Trainings are designed to increase the understanding of the health, developmental, and school readiness needs of preschool aged children.
Great for parents and teachers; participants will learn what development for their child should look like. Developmental milestones are discussed and activities are used to keep the learning fun and clear. Possible signs and symptoms of developmental delays are reviewed, as well as possible solutions. We offer parents opportunities to learn and grow with their children.
