Over the summer, reality TV star Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley opened up about her son’s developmental delay, where she shared an honest Instagram post about the struggles and triumphs they’ve both faced. Months later, Farley now says Greyson, her son, was diagnosed with autism and has been in early intervention for the past few months.

Posting a cute picture of the little boy with his “amazing” applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapist, she reveals “Grey was recently diagnosed with autism. He’s also been in early intervention for over six months now and doing amazing.”

The post comes after Farley’s recent interview with Hollywood Life about her skincare brand, Naturally Woww. After the interview went live, the reality star was unhappy with the way the entertainment website positioned her discussion about her son’s autism as an “exclusive” reveal. So, the fearless mama decided to take matters into her own hands, and share her Instagram post about his diagnosis and what Naturally Woww is doing to help the cause.

“Grey is and will always be my little prince. So to see his diagnosis utilized as clickbait broke my heart and pissed me. His story is too precious, no single article could capture that,” she says. “The article was supposed to be about my brand Naturally Woww and how it’s expanding to a children’s line in honor of Greyson and Meilani."

Becoming an advocate for the cause, the mompreneur is using Naturally Woww to raise awareness and funds for autism.

“Naturally Woww and I will be donating some of its profits to autism organizations that help children like my son…Because that’s the only message I intend to spread in my son’s name…Love and acceptance,” Farley shares.

Farley’s sentiments are wise words to live by. Recently, Grey’s Anatomy actress Caterina Scorsone had a similar message when she uploaded a sweet photo of her daughter, who has Down syndrome, to show others why our “differences are beautiful.”
