Tristin was diagnosed with severe autism & had trouble communicating verbally which led to autistic meltdowns and screaming. He also had a tendency to wander outside of his house & loved to swing on his swing.
Jo brought in Dr. Lynn Koegel to teach the Facentes how to help Tristin communicate & integrate him into their daily schedule. Tristin started learning how to speak which brought tears to his father's eyes.
Tristin was 3 years old at the time of his appearance and as of 2018, he is 16 years old. He will enter a post high School Transition program in 2020 or 2021
