The beginning of the video is a timeline of Greyson’s life up to now, as JWoww showed his milestones; later JWoww and Roger Mathews, her ex, are shown bringing Greyson to a specialist, as his language development was a concern.
JWoww also discusses the challenges that come with an autism diagnosis, including fighting with health insurance for treatment coverage.
In a caption that accompanies the video, JWoww expressed joy at watching Greyson’s rapid progress, saying it’s “nothing short of amazing.”
“Watching Greyson’s journey brings me to tears and fills me with so much pride and joy. Grey’s progress is nothing short of amazing. I’m the proudest mama out there. Special thank you to his teachers and therapists at We Care Autism for their dedication and patience, and thank YOU for your continued love and support.”

Autism is a developmental disorder marked by difficulties with social interactions and communication, as well as various repetitive movements and the tendency to prefer rigid schedules.
Even a seemingly simple task of being instructed to reach out and grab and object can pose challenges for those with autism.
Speech therapy and other interventions can help a person with autism learn to spot facial cues and gain confidence in self-care.
