We're thrilled for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita's family, as Jac and Chris's son Nicholas has reached a big milestone. 

On March 25, Jacqueline posted a video to Instagram of herself helping Nicholas learn to read. And we see that Jac is understandably thrilled that Nick is able to read aloud from the book on his own. 

"Nick is reading.." she captions the video. Way to go, Nick! He's such a cutie.

Indeed, we're very happy for Jacqueline and her entire family. We know how hard they've all been working with Nick, who has autism, and their efforts are clearly paying off. 

Previously, Jac has posted videos of Nick singing during sessions with a music therapist, as songs help him learn to express himself. "Nick loves to sing, and melodies for him allow him to be able to sing more than just one word," reads the description of the video. "Music, and the flow of a melody, helps Nick to just sing and not think about whether he's right or wrong." 

We continue to wish Jac and her family all the best!

Let us know in the comments section what you think about Nick's progress!
