Damon Korb, M.D.

Author & Creator, Raising an Organized Child
Director, Center for Developing Minds

Damon Korb, M.D., a board-certified behavioral and developmental pediatrician, examines the neurodevelopmental brain functions that determine how a child learns, behaves and socializes. With the publication of Raising an Organized Child, Korb aims to provide parents with the tools they need to help children develop their executive function skills.

Dr. Korb has nearly 30 years of pediatric practice experience, including 25 years focusing on child behavior and development, while establishing three unique California clinics that serve children with developmental variations. Caring for thousands of families who had a struggling child -- and raising five children of his own -- has given him a unique perspective about what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to parenting.

Currently serving on the Board of Directors for Parents Helping Parents, San Jose, he was also a past President of the Society of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. Dr. Korb is a member of the Adjunct Clinical Faculty at Stanford University School of Medicine.
