Behavioral & Developmental Pediatrics


The Center for Developing Minds, created by Damon Korb, M.D., is a specialty clinic in the Silicon Valley devoted to developmental and behavioral pediatrics. The Center for Developing Minds provides care for children and young adults who struggle at home and school due to:

Behavior issues | Learning difficulties | Attention problems | Social skill deficits
Autism spectrum disorders | Developmental delays | Psychological disorders


Clinicians at the Center for Developing Minds specialize in uncovering subtle variations in every child's cognitive abilities, which, if left untreated, can lead to chronic frustration and unnecessary struggles. How a child reads, runs and relates to others hinges on a delicate balance of functions of the brain, such as memory, attention and language. When properly identified, weaknesses in these areas can be strengthened or accommodations can be made that allow the child to achieve to his or her potential.

PLEASE NOTE IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19:

In order to help control the spread of COVID-19, until further notice, the Center for Developing Minds will be providing clinical visits, therapy and classes online using our new CharmHealth video-conferencing option.

Certain services (e.g. psychoeducational testing) that require in-person meetings are currently being scheduled at the clinic on a very limited basis. If you have any questions about the appointment and scheduling process, please do not hesitate to call us at 408-358-1853 and we can help. As our staff is currently not in the office, please be patient if our response time is slightly longer than normal. Please continue to isolate your family as much as possible and wear masks in public at all times. Stay safe, stay healthy.

NEW: A Collection of Resources for Families Navigating the Covid-19 Crisis

Many organizations have been sharing helpful websites and articles for parents who are sheltering at home with their family. To help consolidate the information conveniently in one place, we've put together a site with dozens of useful resources, categorized into topics. Please let us know if you have a resource link that would be useful to add to the lists.
