Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley has been candid about parenthood, most notably about navigating her son’s autism treatment. Greyson, 3, was once non-verbal and had trouble understanding communication, but has shown vast improvement since beginning treatment.
Greyson, who was diagnosed with autism about a year ago, has been working with an applied behavior analysis therapist for over six months, as well as with a We Care Autism therapist.

Farley recently shared a video on her Instagram which chronicles the work We Care Autism has been doing with Greyson to improve his speech and overall communication, both verbal and nonverbal.
Farley has been open about the fact that she fought her insurance company to “get the best of the best… for Greyson.”
As a result, Greyson went from getting several hours of therapy a day, several days a week, as well as speech and occupational therapy to getting 30 hours a week of ABA.
In addition to the increased treatment, Greyson’s ABA therapist Steph also goes to his preschool a couple of hours each day to work with him directly.
“These guys changed my life and changed Greyson’s. I am a huge believer in ABA therapy,” Farley shared in her latest YouTube video where she shared details about Greyson’s health.
Farley proudly detailed Greyson’s significant strides over the past year. “Going from not acknowledging your name or being able to sit for literally 30 seconds to doing – I can’t even explain it,” Farley said. “I can’t wait to show you [his progress] by Christmas. He should have event more of an update ‘cause of how fast he’s been shooting from the hip.”
“I don’t know, I feel like you’re just taking over the world one day at a time,” she told Greyson during the video.
And now, a round of applause for mamas like JWoww, whose candidness is always appreciated, particularly about her son and difficult topics like autism. We’re so happy JWoww and her son seem to be doing well.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
