Southborough – According to the Epilepsy Foundation, absence seizures are caused by abnormal activity in a person’s brain and are characterized by a short period of “blanking out” or staring into space. This type of seizure is most common in children ages 4 to 14.
When Andrew and Melanie Harmon noticed their 6-year-old daughter Emily “spacing out” for a few seconds several times a day, they assumed that she was just thinking about something because she would return to the conversation or activity as if nothing happened.
