Welcome to Operation Diversity Academy!
The best online Neurodivergence training and support membership site for parents, carers and guardians who want to do more to support and empower their Neurodivergent children and young people with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) in education and at home.
Every day, we are helping our members navigate through the complex world of Special Education Needs (SEN) identification, assessment, support and services. As a member you will not only have access to our online training seminars, but you will also have access to a wide-range of resources and expert advice to enable you to advocate successfully using the best options available to you and your children. Our dedicated private members VIP Facebook group also offers unlimited access to our team and other members 24/7.
What is the Academy?
Think of it as your one-stop shop for all things SEN, making connections, receiving support, acquiring knowledge, accessing tools, inspiration, strength, strategies, resources and specialist training. Our Academy Live sessions are online seminars that you can watch from the comfort of your own homes, in your pyjamas if you wanted to, without worrying about having to pay out for taking time off work, travelling, accommodation or expensive childcare. They are geared towards helping you as much as humanely possible. We are a passionate to the bones about what we do and dedicated to being there for you when you need us the most!

No more going in circles – feeling bogged down, whilst sifting through random information on the internet. We are going to help you get complete clarity around what you need to do in-order to best advocate and support your child or young person.
We will teach and guide you
Once we are clear on where you are at right now in your journey, your challenges, where you might need support and what you would like to achieve, we can signpost you towards the best webinars, masterclasses or resources so that you can get started.
We will help you implement what you learn
Once you have learnt some tried and tested strategies, you can start to implement them. There are opportunities to ask our experts questions, book our Live Q&A sessions or attend our online mixers where you can discuss them with other parents and carers.
We will provide individualised help
You will have access to support 24/ 7. If you have a burning question, need some feedback, suggestions to manage certain dilemmas, a recommendation for a product or you just need support, we are all here to help you (hundreds of us!).
You will have access to our digital library
You will not only have access to all previous specialist SEN seminars, masterclasses and resources in our online digital library but each month, it will be growing with new resources and live sessions happening regularly.
You will get to know other parents and carers

Don't just take our word for it!
A few words from some of our empowered parents and carers
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."
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."
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."
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.
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."
