Daniele Borghi [MEd in Inclusive and Special Education, GrDip (Psych), QTS, BA (Hons) in Educational Sciences] is a teacher and the team leader of The Bridge Outreach Service.
The Bridge Outreach is a well-established team of specialists supporting the inclusion of school aged pupils (3 – 19) with autism, Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) or Profound & Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) in mainstream settings.
Each Islington school is entitled to choose two free training sessions per year at a date that suits them. We can deliver training during INSET days, as twilight sessions or during the school day. Our training can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual schools. We highly recommend that schools allocate at least 90 minutes per training session.
We are a team of Senior Teachers and a Senior Teaching Assistant who have many years of experience and expertise in working with pupils with autism/SLD/PMLD. We liaise and co-operate with all other Islington based Education, Health and Care professionals.
We support staff in developing their understanding of autism, SLD and PMLD and their skills in meeting the needs of pupils with SEN in mainstream settings.
