ix Acknowledgments The creation of Raising an Organized Child has been a labor of love. The writing of it was tucked into the few precious moments when I was not spending time with the family I love or performing the work I love. A plane ride here, a late night there. On the sidelines of a soccer practice and the bleachers of a gymnasium. Thank you to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) for publish- ing this guidebook for parents. It has been a pleasure to work with every- one in AAP Publishing. Special thanks to my editor, Holly Kaminski, who not only helped clarify my message but, as a mom, recognized the value in this book. While writing Raising an Organized Child, I stood on the broad shoulders of many educators, psychologists, and physicians who have researched learning, executive functions, and development. I recognize their contributions to this book and the greater scientific understanding of child development. Along my journey, I have had wonderful mentors. My parents, David and Darlene Korb, who were brave enough to let me solve problems on my own. Thank you to Joseph Kertes, PhD, for taking me down the path of psychobiology. My gratitude goes out to Brenda Lee, MEd, who mentored me through medical school. Thank you to Stu Teplin, MD Lynn Wegner, MD and Bill Coleman, MD, for setting me on a wonderful path toward developmental and behavioral pediatrics. Thank you to Brad Berman, MD, and Michelle Macias, MD, for their mentorship along the way and for their careful review of this book. And a warm appreciation to Christopher Greeley, MD, and Nerissa Bauer, MD, who also took the time to review and improve this manuscript. ROC_FINAL.indd 9 4/9/19 6:24 PM
