cont. from above.....Also, a child with a DD that is not due to having another dx is usually considered to be either on the Autism Spectrum or at risk, so would be entitled to BHRS (Wraparound) services in order to address developmentally inappropriate social & emotional behaviors.
For your second question....At least here in PA, no, you don't have to have Wraparound services everyday, although it is highly recommended for the really young children b/c consistency is so important. However, if you don't want it or can't do it for whatever reasons, you can participate in Wrap as little or as much as you want (as long as you have approval for the hours, of course). My son, at one point, was receiving 40 hrs of Wrap/week, but after a while we cut it down to 32, then 27, then 12, then finally to just 4 hrs BSC/week.
Wrap is only supposed to be a temporary service, so stepping down hours is natural, expected & encouraged.
