Jenni Farley — or "JWoww" to The Jersey Shore fans — just confirmed that her 2-and-a-half-year-old son Greyson was "recently diagnosed with autism" in an interview with Hollywood Life on Nov. 21. After opening up about how Greyson wasn't speaking yet and behind on hitting speech milestones, she said that attending "therapy three times a week," has helped her son developmentally. She even announced that she's happy to report that he's been making "positive, positive" progress.
"He has co-therapies [every] week but we're going to step it up a notch soon and get him ABA treatments, speech therapy," said Jenni, adding that Greyson has, "made leaps and bounds when it comes to speech" especially when it comes to listening to others. "He's understanding words better, which was his issue."
Although she wasn't certain of her son's specific diagnosis at the time, the mom shared back in September that she was dedicated to helping other parents navigate their children's development issues. "Bringing awareness to all the fans, parents, non-parents and grandparents and literally having their eyes open-minded through this process, that's my end game," she said. "My goal in my life is to bring awareness to the little things in life that we can ultimately change for our future generations."
