She further explained, “He loves gumballs, so he’ll just say, ‘ball.’ Now I make him pick the color of gumball that he wants. He’s understanding — there’s a big distinction between speaking and understanding a word. So, when we line up colors, he actually knows what color goes with what instead of just staying the color.”

The Jersey Shore star revealed in addition to sensory therapy, Greyson is doing applied behavior analysis (ABA). “ABA is one of the most scientific, data-researched ways to help children who have autism. They come for two hours a day, almost every day, and it’s such an amazing thing. They’re going to help me potty train him soon. I don’t even know how that goes, but we’ll see,” she joked.
