Kumpf Student Publishes 'My Life With Asperger's'

Gabriella Smith's memoir appeared in MAAP Newsletter, a quarterly newsletter for families of individuals with autism, Asperger syndrome and pervasive developmental disorder.

The following press release was submitted by the Clark School District.

Gabriella Smith, a student at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School, was recently published in the MAAP Newsletter, a quarterly newsletter for families of more advanced individuals with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder (Volume 3, 2012).

Gabby’s memoir, “My Life with Asperger’s” provided a candid glimpse into the life of a sixth grader growing up with Asperger’s. The memoir assignment required students to reflect on six of the most important experiences in their lives. In addition to developing their narrative writing skills, students illustrated the books and shared them with the class.

Ms. Christine Casale and Ms. Megan Consiglio, Gabby’s writing teachers, noted that she worked very hard on this assignment. Ms. Casale stated, “It was really important to her to educate others about Asperger’s Syndrome. Her story touched so many of our students that we knew it would benefit others in the community as well.”
