Dr. Amanda Winter is a pediatric neuropsychologist who works with individuals from infancy to adulthood. She enjoys working with children with a variety of presenting difficulties, including attention difficulties, cognitive difficulties related to chronic medical conditions (e.g. cancer, sickle cell disease, epilepsy, brain injury, prematurity, genetic syndromes), learning challenges, and developmental issues (delays, autism spectrum disorder). Dr. Winter’s school psychology training and comprehensive knowledge of the Texas educational system along with her extensive pediatric neuropsychology training allows her to take a unique approach to neuropsychological assessment with children. She has an enhanced ability to attend to the particular needs of children who may benefit from a neuropsychological evaluation, to inform intervention, and to provide educational planning.
Dr. Winter completed her undergraduate education at Tulane University. She earned her master’s and doctoral degrees from the School Psychology program at the University of Texas at Austin where she focused on neuropsychology, clinical psychology, and the Texas educational system. Following her doctoral studies, she completed an APA-accredited internship training at the Mailman Center for Child Development/University of Miami Medical School in Miami, Florida, where she continued her work in neuropsychology with pediatric populations. Dr. Winter culminated her training with a 2-year, APPCN-accredited pediatric neuropsychology fellowship at Texas Children’s Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Throughout her training, she has conducted clinically relevant research in the cognitive effects of pediatric cancer, including presentations at national/international conferences and authoring manuscripts published in scholarly journals.
Dr. Winter aims to continually improve herself as a clinician, and is currently working towards earning board certification in clinical neuropsychology (ABPP-CN) as well as learning Spanish. In her free time, she enjoys taking advantage of the culture that Austin has to offer, especially food and music.
