Why Families Choose Us

Integration Station Pediatric Therapy Services was founded in 2010 by occupational therapist, Nicole Cyphert. During the early part of her career, Nicole refined her expertise working with children in sensory clinics, homes, and daycare centers, but felt something was missing from the therapeutic process. She had built strong relationships with families and saw good outcomes from the intervention she provided however she always felt she could do more. This is when she dug deep to determine how good outcomes could become GREAT outcomes which led to the beginning of Integration Station.

Integration Station would be different. It would be a place where families not only received top-notch care for their children but were empowered by becoming an integral part of the therapeutic process. Through empowerment, the children, their parents, siblings, and other caregivers would feel “heard”. They would receive practical strategies that could be implemented into their already busy lives. They would know that they had a team supporting them and helping them along their journey to overcome obstacles.

These values stand true years later and therefore families choose Integration Station as their child’s occupational therapy provider. The team at IS is committed to staying up to date with research and best practices so they can be informative and accelerate the therapeutic process. Families often tell IS how much their children love therapy and are grateful for the gained knowledge and home programming that allows them to better support their child.


Our mission is to help every child achieve their maximum potential by delivering effective therapy programs that match their individual needs. We deliver play-based interventions that are child-directed and motivating. Through our commitment, we provide a safe and supportive path for children to play, learn, and grow.


Our vision is to be a leader in the provision of therapy services to children and their families in Charlotte and surrounding areas. We are determined to provide a higher standard of care with greater accessibility to therapies and other enrichment programs.

Additionally, IS will deliver science-driven practices that place the child and their caregivers at the heart of the process through expanded expertise across developmental, neurological, and intellectual domains.
