Jenni “JWoww” Farley opened up about son Greyson’s recent autism diagnosis, telling Hollywood Life he has “made leaps and bounds when it comes to speech.”
“He has co-therapies [every] week but we’re going to step it up a notch soon and get him ABA [Applied Behavior Analysis] treatments, speech therapy,” the “Jersey Shore” star explained.
“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,” she revealed.
Farley, 32, initially discussed her 2-year-old son’s struggles during the premiere episode of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” earlier this year.
“To find out Greyson is ‘behind’ or ‘delayed’ crushed me … but only for a moment … that moment came from wanting to have ‘perfect children’ and ‘how could this happen to me?’… but Grey is PERFECT and it CAN happen to anyone,” Farley wrote on Instagram at the time.
The mother of two, who also shares daughter Meilani, 4, with estranged husband Roger Mathews, remains hopeful about Greyson’s progress.
“It was really heartbreaking and frustrating as a mom when you see other two-year-olds that are speaking and living their best life,” Farley explained. “Greyson is living his best life. He just doesn’t know what you are saying!”
