Jenni “JWoww” Farley revealed that her youngest child, 2-year-old son Greyson, has been diagnosed with autism.

During a summer episode of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation,” Farley said Greyson wasn’t speaking yet and seemed to have trouble understanding many things.

In late November, Farley, 32, told Hollywood Life that Greyson had been officially diagnosed and that he was enrolled in therapy to help him make connections between objects and words.

“He’s made leaps and bounds when it comes to speech,” she said.

She’s also made her son a sensory room, filled with bubble tubes, tunnels and interactive wall panels. Sensory rooms have been shown to benefit children with autism by giving them a designated place to calm down or play.

Cannot thank my girlfriend @traciljohnson enough for her time and connections within the autism community for putting us in contact with @kulturecity who set @greysonmathews up with his very own sensory room. We had the honor of hanging out with one of the most generous souls I’ve ever met @justinm_503 who flew here on his own time to build Greysons room. you will never meet a kinder soul willing to help those in need. This is a new realm for us. One filled with tons of information and different theory’s of treatments. So grateful Grey chose me to be his mommy and @rogermathewsnj to be his daddy ? We wont let him down. Mommy will work extra hard with my @naturallywoww family to ensure the best ingredients are used for his skin, and connect with organizations like @kulturecity who help autistic individuals be accepted, included and fulfill their potential.

Diagnosis of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is on the rise, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network. About 1 in 59 children are on the spectrum, according to the most recent research.

Farley shares two children with Roger Mathews. Along with Greyson, they have a 4-year-old daughter, Meilani.

In September, Farley filed for divorce from Mathews after about three years of marriage. She is seeking primary residential custody of both children, according to US Weekly.

On Thanksgiving, Farley’s friend and “Jersey Shore” co-star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi announced she is expecting her third child with husband Jionni LaValle.
