Hello parents and educators,

My name is Leah Nierman and I am an Educational Specialist working towards becoming certified as an integrative health coach for children with mild to moderate learning disabilities. Over the past ten years, I have worked in both the private and public sector as an aide, Elementary teacher and as a resource Specialist.

Throughout my time working in the schools, I noticed parents would seek information about special diets such as: gluten free, paleo, dairy free and sugar free. They were constantly looking for alternative approaches to better support their child’s attention, behavior and cognitive development. Sadly, they did know whom to turn to for guidance and support. This year, I am infusing my two passions of education and health to start a holistic learning blog to guide you and your family to make healthier lifestyle choices.
