When Greyson was five years old, he was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, ADHD, anxiety, oppositional defiant disorder, and conduct disorder. He received a diagnosis of autism in 2021.
His parents are proud of his willingness to speak up about how he feels and his desire to research his own ways to overcome obstacles. Carrying a book wherever he goes helps Greyson manage his anxiety. He seeks friends who will not judge him, and he wants to feel accepted and loved just like everyone else.
