“Jersey Shore” star, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, is being called a super mom.
Over the last few months, Farley has been documenting her 2-year-old son Greyson’s journey after he was diagnosed with autism.
Just last week, the proud mom of two revealed that her son, who was at one time non-verbal, has learned to identify and verbally call out names of colors.
And now, as a video JWoww has shared with her fans on Instagram reveals, he can even count to six.
Friends and strangers are calling Farley a “super mom” for just how dedicated she is to making sure Greyson is given the best chance to live his best life.
Her co-reality star’s wife, Lauren Sorrentino wrote:

Her best friend, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, wrote:

And thousands of others agreed with Snooki and Lauren:

However, despite the praise both she and Greyson were receiving, Farley also had to defend her son’s diagnosis.
When one commenter said she felt “like doctors are so quick to diagnose children when all they really need is some extra help with speech therapy,” JWoww quickly defended her son’s larger team of doctors:
Less than 6 months ago my son didn’t acknowledge his name or anything we said like “get your shoeS” or “let’s go outside”…he didn’t even qualify for speech because he didn’t understand any words to speak… we spoke another language to him. So no, i don’t believe over 10 doctors, 6 specialists and people i flew to “were so quick” to diagnose. I post what i chose to post… showing the light at the end of a tunnel… but never mistake for a second that the tunnel is long, dark, and f*cking exhausting. Supplements, diet change and endless hours of research and therapy got him here.
Regardless of Greyson’s diagnosis, the work Jenni and his father have been putting in to help him reach different milestones seems to be working.
