Well I have never heard of anything specifically but have you been to a pediatric neurologist with this problem? Try that and see what happens take your child to as many doctors as you can find until somebody gives you an answer. Is there a childrens hospital anywhere near you? I would start there. Let me know what happens. Leigh

There are several possibilities. Maybe, there is a mild case of epilepsi, where he becomes absent. Maybe some other neurological disorder. Perhapse it is nothing drastic and he just wanders of for a moment, like think something to himself. Everyone has experienced that one or other time - I hope.
Don't worry to much too soon. Just take your child to a pediatrician, a nevrologist and try to get some naswers.

I hope everything will be ok.

I have a friend who is epileptic and the just stands there and looks absent its a form of a sesure. I would have that checked out at a childrens hospital look on the internet for one in your state or community and also remember that epilepsi is very commonly mis-diognosed and sometimes they cant accuretly diognose it. Its not an easy medical condition to see.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This could be due to epilepsy or autism spectrum disorder. I would suggest EEG and psychiatric evaluation.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
