Jenni “JWoww” Farley shared a heartwarming update about her son Greyson and how he’s been progressing since he was diagnosed with autism last year. On October 1, the 33-year-old Jersey Shore star posted a long YouTube video all about the 3-year-old and how he’s doing since he started applied behavior analysis therapy earlier this year.

On Jersey Shore Family Vacation, Jenni had shared her worries about her youngest son, who was non-verbal and had difficulty understanding words. He was developmentally delayed, and she shared that he finally got an official autism diagnosis in November 2018.

“Since he started with We Care Autism ABA services, [it] has been one hell of an experience,” she said. The reality star said she had to fight her insurance company “to get the best of the best … for Greyson.”

“He used to have [ABA therapy for] two-to-three hours, three times a week, and he would also do speech and OT [occupational therapy] at a local hospital,” Jenni explained.
