According to ABC News, it's now official. Jett Travolta was, in fact, autistic:
The actor testified that his son Jett, 16, was autistic and suffered seizures every five to 10 days. He said the seizures would last 45 seconds to a minute and Jett typically slept for 12 hours after each one. "He was autistic. He suffered from a seizure disorder," Travolta told the jury when asked about his son's condition.
The testimony was apparently the first time that Travolta has talked publicly about his son's autism. In the past he had said Jett suffered from Kawasaki disease, a rare condition in children that involves inflamation of the blood vessels.
The Travoltas have no explained why they felt more comfortable describing their son as having Kawasaki disease -- or whether Jett suffered from several separate but related disorders (Kawasaki, autism, and seizure disorders).
