Four months ago, one of the stars of the “Jersey Shore,” Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley, revealed that her 2-year-old son, Greyson, has autism.
JWoww said of her son diagnosis in a YouTube video:
“He has co-therapies [every] week but we’re going to step it up a notch soon and get him ABA treatments, speech therapy. …
He’s made leaps and bounds when it comes to speech. He’s understanding words better which was his issue. Not that he couldn’t speak, but he would never know what his shoe is or if you said, ‘Greyson,’ he actually didn’t even know his name at one point until he was a little over two. So now that he’s understanding simple words, he’s come so far.”
And ever since, the hands-on mom has continued documenting Greyson’s progress.
Including his ability to now call out colors:
His ability to count:
And most recently, the mom of two shared a video of Greyson reciting a full nursery rhyme.

Johnny, Johnny? Yes Papa? Eating candy? No, Papa! Telling lies? No, Papa! Open wide! Ah, ah, ah! I know it well. My 4 year old granddaughter is also on the spectrum
His speech is already so improved!! Speech therapy does wonders for the speech delayed. My 5 year just graduated out of her speech therapy in school
