They are concerned about Cognition,Communication, Social/Emotional and Adaptive. That all fell under Eligible for Early intervention and at risk for Physical.

They think that he may have the problems with being aggressive because he is having problems with Communicating. He likes to do silly stuff like Peekaboo and they suggested doing that with each family member. She also suggested to show Jay how toys are meant to play with. He is limited to how he plays with toys. For example instead of pushing his car he flips it over and spins the wheels. They also suggested trying to work with him on doing a activity for a longer period of time because he jumps from activity to activity.

So we will have a therapist come out once a week. I am supposed to get a call at the end of the week.

I am glad they were able to identify his problems and that he qualifies for Early Interevention, that's great!
One of my fears before our eval was that Gus wouldn't be exhibiting any of his quirks that day and would come across as too normal and not qualify for any therapy even though I knew something wasn't right with him.
It's good that you trusted your instincts and got the eval
What does your SO think now that a professional agrees with you?

My dd was famous for not showing her quirks during the evals. Because her verbal skills were high and she was such a polite little thing, she just came off as charming But she still qualified for services because she had physical disabilities so a few of her therapists were able to see her quirks over time. Now that she's older, her quirks and moods are impossible to miss.

Anyway, its good that your little guy will be getting services. The sooner the better and hopefully you'll see a lot of progress in the coming days!!
