Feedback from some of our empowered Academy members
Sarah is the most committed and inspiring woman I have ever come across (does she even sleep?) I can't express my thanks so will pay it forward instead and make sure I am there to help another parent. And that's the beauty of Operation Diversity; we are all in it together."
I have been able to educate myself to a point that I’m now able to deal with the processes involving school and other agencies confidently.
There is a real family feel around the members, it really feels like we are all in this together. I no longer feel isolated, lost or overwhelmed as I did before. Now I feel strong, supported and informed."
I got Dexter privately accessed that week and it was confirmed he has dyslexia, it was still a shock, I didn't really know what that meant, or how to deal with it, I then joined this group, then the academy, for the price of a couple of pints and a bag of hog snacks I got access to tonnes of resources , it gave me the confidence to have a meeting with the head, deputy head and SENCO explain that this really isn't good enough, that I am über pissed that despite me raising my concerns you overlooked my child, despite only scoring 4 on the mock phonics test nothing was put in place, that they need to put in place the recommendations from Dexter’s report, and that I don't really care if I come across as a pushy parent, or “that dad”, or a bit of an asshole in fact. This group has taught me you should always be your child's biggest advocate, I really wouldn't have had the confidence, vocabulary, or tools to do this without the academy, thanks Sarah Chapman, I’m in awe at the hours she puts into this group, every question gets answered, everyone gets the help they need, having a child with learning difficulties is isolating at times, this groups a great place to not feel alone, I should also mention since joining the academy, Dexter has gone up 4 book bands, got from counting 1-17 to 1-100 an 1-1000 in hundreds, has a support plan in place at school ..... and a new senco."
Operation Diversity Academy is a community with no discrimination against home educators or school-based families, we are all going through the same daily struggles. It provides information (in written and video format) on many different issues, not exclusively dyslexia which has been particularly helpful to me in identifying our needs, most of which comes directly from current leading experts in their fields. I would recommend the academy to anyone who's children find life challenging, this is the place to ask questions, get information and feel supported. "
I have witnessed and experienced many professionals who have hidden agendas and in this maze of SEND you only discover this hidden agenda after spending money. The heartbreak and distress in finding out that what you have been sold does not help or stand up under scrutiny is a major reason this group exists. The community’s ideal has always been to help navigate the murky waters of SEND, to find the right solution for a persons dilemma- whether the need is to secure the right intervention or support at school, or at home, a piece of software or that a professional has the right accreditation to undertaken assessments or tutor a child.
The community succeeds because ultimately at its heart is a person who was treated like a failure growing up due to her SEND. The determination to make sure that other children do not have to go through what she did is the life force that has created such an energised community. Taking this one step further Sarah has created a membership site that will help people further than any Facebook community can. Being able to help all within the SEND community be it an individual, a parent, professional, employer, locate help with whatever they need and if it has a cost that the cost is justified."
Sarah and her team of experts are incredibly knowledgeable, they will hold your hand and guide you through step by step.
Having access to the experts and fantastic resources has given me both the confidence and knowledge I need to fight my children’s corner.
Thanks OD x."
The ability to ask an expert about strategies to help my daughter from everything from phonics to behaviour issues has really changed our lives and that of our daughter. Knowing you are not alone in this is so important. I love the "mixers" where I can talk to other parents and share information. The monthly subscription is a bargain. Forget searching and reading the web, spending all your time fighting with what you hope is the "right" information. Operation Diversity is your one stop shop for everything you and your family need to know. Sarah and the Team are professional, approachable and empowering."
I spoke to many wonderful people who offered me advice WHENEVER I NEEDED IT and believe me, I was messaging a lot and at various times throughout the day and evening. Much advice was given to us regarding an impending tribunal regarding my son's EHCP content. With all this advice and positivity we battled on (emotionally at times) and received the best news that his EHCP would be changed in our favour prior to the tribunal. We really feel we had worked so hard at getting all the questions answered and paperwork content in such good order thanks to all the extra advice. Sarah and the other Academy parents shared such a wealth of knowledge, advice and encouragement it gave us the courage to carry on. We truly could not have done this on our own.
There are so many plusses for joining the Academy. The webinars are always relevant and informative they are held on a frequent basis and have helped in my personal and working life. The access to resources as well as the above ensures that the monthly price is amazing value for money. Just do it you won't regret it. Thank you Operation Diversity Academy you leave me believing that there are still those out there who will do what they can to help those in need."
