Day Institute Specialty Tracks: The Day Institute has three specialty tracks:

injury or illness. Each track assists the participant with becoming more aware of
the changes in themselves after an injury or illness and how those changes impact
their lives in home, work, school or leisure environments.
Goals of the Day Institute: The goals of the program are to maximize personal and functional independence that reestablishes a daily routine.
