Jacqueline Laurita’s Son, Nicholas, Progressing!

In August, Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jacqueline Laurita, spoke with People Magazine about her youngest son, Nicholas’ autism diagnosis. Jacqueline told the mag, at around 18 months old, Nicholas began regressing with his speech and motor skills, then refusing to answer to his name or notice when people would enter a room. Since revealing the diagnosis to the public, she has been advocating for autism, and doing all the research she can to study the causes and treatments for the disorder.

This week, Jacqueline was pleased to reveal that Nicholas is making progress! She tweeted, “My son had not been saying much of anything 4 a while & then 2day out of nowhere, Letters & Lollipop! Amazing! Always on his terms! lol! Still thrilled.”

In case you missed it, here’s a video Bravo showed at the Reunion, that explains Jacqueline’s journey with Nicholas.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
