My son went to a counseling appt and the lady think he had seizure because she asked him a question and ds  spaced off and came out with a different answer then to what question was asked. No shakes or anything like that, so im just curious to what you all think. Thank you.

If that's the only time he's done that, I would not be too worried. If you start noticing him spacing off for 30 seconds or more and he won't respond to his name or if you clap in front of his face, then it's time to go and make an appointment with the neurologist!

 the Sooner they Test the BETTER!!! my oldest wasn't caught for 6months and by that time he was struggleing to be up with his peers everytime a child has a Seizure Big or Small it is Very hard on there brain..... and you could only been seeing a few but he could be having much more my son we only caught 3(ones we could see) During his EEG when he's results came back he had had 23 in that 24 hours so  that ment there was 20 Sezures he had that i couldn't see.....  it never hurts to have a EEG just to be sure if it come back NORMAL   GREAT if it comes back Abnormal then he can get treatment...

Well then, it can't hurt to call the Dr. :)
It usually really helps to get it on video, if possible! Good luck!
