Meet Peter Stavinoha, PhD

I'm Pete Stavinoha, I'm a neuropsychologist in Dallas, Texas. I'm a professor of psychology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and I practice at Children's Medical Center in Dallas. My specialty areas are neurodevelopmental disorders and brain injuries. And I've also written a book on potty training called, "Stress-Free Potty Training." We have one son who is 16 years old and is potty trained. And I spend most of my time at his baseball games. I used to love to play baseball, loved to play basketball, but injuries prevent me from doing that now. So most of my time and energy now is spent watching him.
