In unrelated celebrity news, John Travolta, a Scientologist, has a son who is rumored to be autistic. In this blog on the ParentDish site, a blogger wonders whether the rumors are true - and if they are, whether the Travoltas are doing the right thing by their son.
Whether John's treatment of son Jeff is appropriate or not, kudos are certainly in order for his brother, Joey Travolta, who recently produced a film entitled "Normal People Scare Me." Directed by autistic teen Taylor Cross, the film has received kudos from the autism community and film reviewers alike. Joey Travolta is also the founder of Actors for Autism, a program that involves young people with and without autism in acting, animation and filmography classes.
