Menita Sekhon - Autism Advisor

(BA History and Geography, BEd, QTS)

SEND Teacher and part-time team member for The Bridge Outreach Service.

Menita has been teaching since 2003 when she qualified as a Secondary History and Geography teacher in Vancouver, Canada.  After teaching in a variety of settings (Secondary, Primary and SEN) she joined The Bridge School in 2005 as a class teacher working with children aged 5-11 with Autism, SLD and MLD. 

With support from The Bridge Outreach Service, she helped set up the first inclusion class in Islington which was based at Hungerford School.  This class enabled pupils to access the social and learning opportunities available at a mainstream school whilst still being linked to an SEN school.

Her particular interest is within inclusion class settings and supporting the transition of children from special needs settings into mainstream schools.
