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 are experts 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.

Center for Developing Minds continues to adjust our COVID-19 protocols as the status of the pandemic is dynamic. Because we have young clients who are not eligible for the coronavirus vaccine, we continue to enforce mask-wearing by all staff and visitors to the clinic. Everyone on our staff is vaccinated. For the health and safety of our clinicians and other patients, we also have a new policy for appointments:

    • For clients over the age of 12 (and their parents/guardians), in order to have an in-person appointment at the clinic you must now be vaccinated for COVD-19. If you are not vaccinated, you may continue to schedule appointments via our Charm online health portal.
    • For children who are still too young to receive the COVID vaccine, you have the option of appointments either in-person or via our online health portal. To schedule in-person, any parents/guardians in attendance must have received the COVID vaccine.

We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. If you have any questions regarding scheduling, or if you need to change your appointment from in-person to online, please contact the clinic directly at 408-358-1853. To reduce the number of people in the clinic at any given time, our clinicians will only be in the office on select days of the week, but we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Stay safe, stay healthy.
