The Shapingpro is a combined term of the shaping program and the professional who does it.
It started in 2011 when the calling to establish a center to cater solely to children with exceptional needs are compelling. The need to have a quality, affordable and accommodating center is deafening as families hop around just to find a perfect place where their child could develop holistically.
Mr. Cayetano Polancos Jr, MAEd-SPED, PTRP, LPT or Teacher Jun established Shapingpro Child Development Center in September of 2011. The center offers Behavioral Therapy for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder , Educational Therapy for children with Dyslexia and Intellectual Disability and also Pediatric Physical Therapy for children with Cerebral Palsy.
We have already given therapies to numerous clients mostly from Davao City but we have also catered to clients from other regions of Mindanao who have come to seek for our services.
In partnership with other school and therapeutic communities, we have ventured out of our comfort zones to engage children with special needs who have no opportunities to be in a therapy center. That is to show that SHAPINGPRO remains to be steadfast in its commitment of serving children with special needs whatever the circumstances may be.
