Jenny "JWoww" Farley showed that her youngest child, 2-year-old son Grayson, was diagnosed with autism.
During the summer episode of “Family Vacation in Jersey Shore,” Farley said that Grayson had not yet spoken and did not seem to understand much.
At the end of November, Farley, 32, said Hollywood Life, that Grayson was officially diagnosed and that he was enrolled in therapy to help him establish a link between objects and words.
“When it comes to speech, he made the jumps,” she said.
She also made her son a sensory room filled with bubbles, tunnels, and interactive wall panels. Sensory rooms have been shown to benefit children with autism by providing them with a place to calm down or play.
The diagnosis of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is increasing, according to the Center for Monitoring Diseases and Prevention of Autoimmune Diseases and Prevention of Diseases. According to recent studies, about 1 out of 59 children are in the spectrum.
Farley shares two children with Roger Matthews. Along with Grayson, they have 4-year-old daughter Meilani.
In September, Farley filed for divorce with Matthews after three years of marriage. According to the American weekly, she is seeking primary housing under the care of both children.
Matthews today shared a record of overcoming obstacles on Instagram in an explicit response to Farley's announcement of Grayson.
In the two photographs, one of the Meilani Christmas pictures, painted for Daddy, and one of the screenshots of the Prayer of St. Francis de Merchant, sent by Matthews’s father, were included.
The message read: “Waking up to these colorings, my daughter left for me on the kitchen table and this text from the Holy Scriptures from my father. We all have misfortunes in our life to come, but we could not do it without love and support of those we take great care to do everything possible to spend a positive day today. I hope you do it too. This is part of the trip. There will be obstacles. ”
