As I Am details the struggles of Garret's mother to advocate for a "normal" childhood education for her son in the city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In order to be afforded a stimulating learning environment in the least restrictive environment, Garret's legal case went through a lengthy court process, ending in his appearance before the Justices of the United States Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruling in Garret's favor set precedence for access to public education for thousands of handicapped children throughout the nation.

A healthy approach to physical disability
I have recently been accepted as a volunteer for children 7-10 year olds. I feel like now, after listening to Garret’s storyI can understand them and their parents even more. I see them with lots of strengths and abilities that many of them aren’t able to see, and pray that in some way they will learn to become all that they are meant to be!

What started as assigned reading for class turned into a book I could not stop listening to! Garret's journey was not only inspiring but it was precisely detailed and honest!
