Judge Randall Howe has represented Arizona in more than 400 appeals, argued more than 80 cases in the Arizona Supreme Court and even argued on the state’s behalf before the U.S. Supreme Court. So why would anyone ever question his intelligence?

Howe was born with cerebral palsy, a congenital disorder that affects movement, muscle tone and posture.

For Howe, it mostly impacts his speech and ability to walk.

“It affects all of my limbs. I have difficulty walking. I lack fine motor control,” he said.

Being born with a disability in the 1960s meant he wasn’t guaranteed anything. Many people born with a disability at the time were institutionalized.

That’s why many were shocked when Howe’s mother was insistent on having him start kindergarten at the same time and at the same school as his peers in Colorado.
