School Readiness is a three-month program for families with young children based at the The Priority Center. The School Readiness program assists families in Orange County with children ages 0-8, in reducing barriers to medical care and early childhood mental health services in order to provide them with the healthiest start in life. This program focuses on identifying developmental delays and behavioral issues at the earliest age possible and then links families to appropriate services and support. Our highly trained staff will screen your child in your home and work with your family to provide an individualized plan of services to meet any needs that are identified. Our program has built relationships with early childhood care and education providers, pediatricians, and community- based organizations.
