Seizures can change. His seizures may increase in number or severity and even to generalized seizures or they may disappear. Often children can outgrow this but unfortunately not always. There are many very intelligent people with epilepsy but sometimes a child can miss out on instruction in school if the absence seizures occur frequently. This can hurt them accademically if the teacher does not realize the situation and help out by seeing he has understood. Also sometimes the meds used to control the seizures can cause some learning difficulties as the child is sometimes in a bit of a fog from them. Hopefully your son does not have a major problem with these seizures and they do not hinder him for long.
