Look who's talking now! Over the weekend, Jersey Shore star Jenni "JWoww" Farley shared the cutest video of her son Greyson that's a major milestone for the 2-year-old, who has delayed speech and was recently diagnosed with autism.

  • JWoww recently opened up about Greyson's diagnosis.

    After confirming that her son indeed has autism to HollywoodLife, JWoww revealed that “he’s made leaps and bounds when it comes to speech.” 

    According to the reality star, Greyson could always speak, but struggled with comprehension. “He’s understanding words better which was his issue," she said. "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 2,” she explained. “So now that he’s understanding simple words, he’s come so far.”

  • Now, thanks to Instagram, we have a video update on how the little one is doing.

    Dressed as a superhero from The Incredibles, Greyson can be seen repeating "Red!" "Yellow!" and "Blue!" back to his mom.

    So cute!

  • JWoww regularly provides updates on all that she's doing to help her son.

    In one post, she said that Greyson has been in early intervention for six months. She also shared that she's changed up his diet and had a sensory room put in her house.

  • Naturally, people are thrilled to see Greyson making progress.

    One even called him a "ham," since he's so cute on camera!

  • People also shared stories about their children's delayed speech.

    Perhaps JWoww's video will show other parents with children on the spectrum that these major improvements are possible.

  • Still, the video didn't escape criticism.

    As one Facebook commenter put it, JWoww has money and can more easily afford to get her son help. She hasn't had to deal with the same struggle as non-famous autism parents, who have to maintain full-time jobs for benefits while traveling for therapy.

    It's a fair point.

  • However, there's no denying that JWoww and Roger Matthews are great parents.

    The star and her soon-to-be ex husband clearly just want the best for their little boy, and it looks like all their effort is really making a difference.

  • We're just so happy Greyson is doing well!


    Here's to hitting many more milestones!
