The Day Treatment Program at Children's of Alabama is an outpatient program designed for children who are recovering from a neurological illness or injury or who have a disability resulting in their inability to perform tasks of daily living independently. The program offers the intensity of inpatient rehabilitation without overnight hospitalization. Therapies are scheduled Monday through Friday. Sometimes children are referred directly to Day Treatment after their inpatient rehabilitation to serve as a step-down program to outpatient therapy. Other times, the physician may recommend Day Treatment months after hospital discharge if intensive therapy is in the best interest of the child.
