Childhood Absence Epilepsy
(aka Pyknolepsy)

Absence Seizures- Sally is an 8-year-old with CAE. She is a good
student, but her epilepsy interferes with her school work and
academics. She is on medication, but her meds only minimize her
seizures. Sally’s seizures vary in intensity; sometimes she will
stare into space for a few seconds, or even get up and wander
aimlessly around the room. Sally has no control over what her
body is doing since the nerves in her brain cause her to become
unconscious of what she is doing. Sally also complains of seeing a
bright flashing light in her eyes, which is often a sign of an
oncoming seizure. While Sally’s form of epilepsy is not severe, she
sometimes suffers really bad seizures that control and jerk her
whole body for about 30 seconds. However, her teachers know
how to handle her situation and her classmates are understanding
and embrace Sally.

freaked out if and when a seizure occurs. (Seizure

Stay calm.
Keep a persistent eye on the child to look for signs
of an oncoming seizure.
Ask the student about their condition and get to
