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. In August 2013, an EEG confirmed that Emily was experiencing absence seizures.
