William A. Schraegle, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Department of Neurology and courtesy assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Dell Medical School. He is also a pediatric neuropsychologist practicing within the Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Center within UT Health Austin Pediatric Neurosciences at Dell Children’s. He specializes in providing pre- and post-surgical assessments and general evaluations for children with chronic epilepsy who experience cognitive concerns. Schraegle earned his doctorate in counseling psychology with a major area of study in neuropsychology at The University of Texas at Austin. He completed an internship in clinical psychology with a specialty focus in pediatric neuropsychology at the Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric neuropsychology at Dell Medical School/Dell Children’s.
Schraegle is committed to the scientist-practitioner model, with the goal of improving clinical care delivery through scientific inquiry. Much of his research to date has explored neurocognitive and behavioral functioning in pediatric epilepsy, with particular emphasis on the association of cognitive profiles with epileptic foci and functional and health-related quality (HRQOL) of life outcomes. His current research focuses on exploring syndrome specific cognitive and behavioral phenotypes in pediatric epilepsy, with the ultimate goal of improving early identification and providing targeted intervention for patients and families.
