In brief: Absence seizures can

Impact a child' s attention, behavior ; learning, even when controlled on medication.
Request a " section 504" at school for any needed accommodations. .If sunlight precipitates them, wearing a large-brimmed hat when outside may help. The child should be monitored while swimming or on playground equipment.See https://www.Epilepsy.Com, the epilepsy foundation for facts ; resources.
